When architect, Bolette Blædel, went on maternity leave with her first child, she found it difficult to find children’s furniture that encouraged play and movement, and at the same time lived up to her love for Danish design. Soon she joined forces with her sister, designer, Louise Blædel, and a creative idea began to flourish: What if they could design furniture that would stimulate children’s imagination through play, while developing their motor skills? The idea of bObles tumbling furniture was born.


Since the first tumbling furniture saw the light of day in 2006, bObles has been internationally recognized and honored with several design awards, but the mission has stayed the same: to make furniture that motivates children to move.
