A light, portable and upholstered booster that’s flat when folded, pops open in the blink of an eye. The origami structure is incredibly strong and meets the toughest safety standards (Pop-Up withstands 20,000 impacts of 75 kg). It’s easy to use and light to carry (1.1kg). It has a stain and odor-proof finish so a quick wipe and Pop-Up is good as new.
For hospitality, Pop-Up takes up no more space than a menu when folded and the second it's needed, it pops open with a flourish to delight the guests – and no more plastic clutter in the corner. Pop-up gives every child a comfy, secure seat.
