Skagerak’s Vent stool, designed by Chris L. Halstrøm, is a charming union of two opposite materials, steel and paper. The slim, black steel frame supports the classic seat of braided paper cord, giving Vent an organic look that will easily fit both modern and more traditional interiors.

"Vent" means waiting in Danish, and the collection was originally designed for slow observing and taking breaks while visiting a museum. The hand-made seat is manufactured in collaboration with the Danish company Blindes Arbejde, which employs visually impaired people by traditional, handcrafted design.

Chris Liljenberg Halstrøm

Chris Liljenberg Halstrøm (b. 1977) established her own studio after graduating from The Royal Danish Academy in Copenhagen in 2007. Copenhagen-based Halstrøm designs objects and furniture for projects, exhibitions and brands such as Skagerak, Halle+ and Design Nation. The Georg furniture she created for Skagerak has brought her the Design+ Award, the Red Dot Award and the German Design Award. Elle Decoration Sweden named the collection as the ”Bedroom furniture of the year” in 2016.

Halstrøm’s work is influenced both by her Nordic roots and the interest in traditional Japanese architecture and design. The designs are characterized by minimalism and natural materials – form always follows function. She also works with textile designer Margrethe Odgaard under the name Included Middle. Together they examine how form influences colour and pattern, and vice versa.
