December 19, 2008 Created by Swedish designer Bo Ekstrom, Nathi is a funky baby’s change table that not only looks great, it will also save valuable floor space. Unlike traditional change tables which are large, heavy and not particularly stylish, the wall-mounted Nathi is lightweight (6kg), aesthetically pleasing, and when not in use it closes with a tension latch to fit neatly and inconspicuously against the wall.
Made from natural, non-toxic bent beechwood sourced from local FSC certified woods, the table has deeply contoured sides to ensure baby’s safety and the changing area measures 29 ½” x 18” with a maximum load weight 50 kg. The design includes two shelves with high protective sides and the table’s surface is made from a non-toxic water-bases lacquer and can be easily cleaned. The mattress has a 1 ¼” machine-washable cover, is made from soft cotton and non-allergenic polyester wool and is available in mossy green or ivory.
Nathi and Ekstrom's other changing stations and tables are produced in a small factory in Belgium. It has been tested for safety by the independent Technical Research Institute of Sweden and retails for $790.
