Play as core value
For Nis Hauge, who designed Clumsy Hans, play is a core value.
The idea behind the design is to create a playful sculpture for the home that is both functional and stimulates the creativity of children and adults.
Clumsy Hans won’t look out of place in the kitchen or anywhere else in the home as a decorative wooden figure enticing guests to play.
The Clumsy Hans table trivet was first produced in early 1996. It was relaunched in 2016 in close collaboration with designer Nis Hauge. In 2017, MoMa’s design stores in New York and Tokyo included Clumsy Hans in their collection.
Imagination at the dining table
Contrary to what you might think, the larger version of Clumsy Hans is no clumsier than the little one.
He is a little bigger but still a beautiful design piece for your kitchen. And he still protects your dining table against burns from large pots and dishes.
With Clumsy Hans you enliven the dining table. Anyone can turn and bend Clumsy Hans into a myriad of fun and lively forms. At the same time, the trivet also performs its primary function of protecting the table surface.
Clumsy Hans is fun to place on your dining table and a welcome dining room diversion for the playful spirits in your family.
It's a perfect opportunity to bring play, imagination and creativity into everyday life at the dining table.
