Skagerak’s Georg is a charming collection of wooden furniture that took inspiration from the need to hang and store items in domestic hallways. The stools, tables, mirrors and coat racks, designed by Chris Liljenberg Halstrøm, feature a minimalist design influenced by Scandinavian and Japanese aesthetics. The clean-lined legs and frames are made of FSC certified oak and the cushions upholstered with wool are held on the stools and benches with simple leather strings. The pleasant Georg collection is at home in both compact entrance halls and spacious living rooms.

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.View all products
