Skandika – outdoor company

I got my first backpack when I first 14. I went to France for 3 weeks on a language trip {and learned more English than French but that’s another story}. I used it for many years to come.

Did a little break and tried the ‘grown up’ version with suitcases and cool week ender bags. When we added kids to our {travel} life I went back to the backpack thing. It is just so practical. As practical as having a stroller that can be pushed with one hand only for example.

Luggage on your back means: 2 free hands. And I think I do not need to explain further what two free hands mean when you have kids…

uuio – children’s furniture and toys


At uuio it all began with the idea of creating a highchair. A design highchair with a timeless shape, built only from the finest materials and equipped with technical detail.

It then evolved to be a whole furniture concept for children. Enriching the living spaces of children through design. Catering both for adults and children’s needs – for families.

UUIO is Johann, Pia & Sebastian. The name is a fantasy word that was made out of letters that Johann’s and Pia’s daughters could write first. These letters also represent the clear lines that flow through all of the team’s designs.

We are convinced that children’s furniture can not only be functional but contribute to the look of a designed interior.
