KPN has introduced a modern version of the classic chair that generations of children in the Netherlands have used to learn how to ice skate. The white high-tech skate chair with green handles was developed to be a help on the ice. The operator states that 1 in 3 children aged 4-12 cannot skate, according to research among nearly 1,000 Dutch parents. KPN has contracted Olympic champion Sven Kramer to help with the introduction.
