Themed placemats for Antilop

Themed placemats for Antilop highchair

Materials: Silicon, Antilop

Description I am a father of two and a graphic designer as a profession. Like most of families we own a Antilop highchair from Ikea. But to me it seemed a bit dull. So I came up with placemats that fits this highchair.

The placemats are made out of silicon and you can wash it either by hand or in the dishwasher.

The placemat comes in four different themes:

“Vegas Baby”- inspired by Las Vegas’ Black Jack table

Themed placemats for Antilop highchair

“Qu’ils mangent de la brioche” – inspired by Marie Antoinette

Themed placemats for Antilop highchair

“Mum.. we got a problem” – space and aviation themed

“Just another breakfast” – bling for Audrey Hepburn fans

    Other than being an ad for ready made product – the idea is nice.
    You could print it on adhesive for example.

    Very cool!

    And not ALL of these high chairs have been recalled in Australia. Only a specific batch. The info is on IKEA’s website.

    Neat — I gotta share this with a graphical-designer father-of-two friend of mine! :-)

    But oh man! I hate those flash-only sites. Was that really the only way of doing a 5-image slide show? So typical of graphical designers. (But then again, I’m a software developer, and I’d probably go equally overboard on a simple screen saver app……. ;-)

    This highchair was just recalled today in Australia due to a defective buckle. All chairs sold since 2006 are recalled. Not sure about the rest of the world. I guess check the website.

    Wow! That is a great idea! Unfortunately we are beyond the age of highchairs with a little table, but had I known…
    I am sure you could also print them (or have them printed) and laminate and cut to size. Not quite as neat, but maybe something anybody could do.
    Or where can you have personalized silicone placemats have made?
    Anyway: Excellent idea!
