Chris Liljenberg Halstroem
With a Swedish mother and Danish father Chris Liljenberg Halstrøm shows her Nordic roots in her designs through a minimalistic approach and strong combinations of materials like wood, leather and wool. Function is her starting point and dictates the idiom of her beautiful designs.
She was born in Glostrup, Denmark, and graduated from The Royal Danish Academy, School of Design, in Copenhagen, where she also today lives, manage her own studio, and organize/ take part in Danish and international exhibitions. She prefers the materials of wood, wool and steel, and despite loving to experience the world, her home is her favourite place in the whole world. Chris Liljenberg Halstrøm is a curious and investigative woman. And it is in the investigation that she finds her biggest inspiration – an investigation of all possible angles of a design that draws her and broadens her perspective on the design process. Besides this, she is deeply fascinated by traditional Japanese architecture and design which focuses on the core function of the design. And because of this, it is no surprise that Chris Liljenberg Halstrøm challenges new alternative core functions of a future design when she is immerse in a new design project.
