In a warm meeting between Nordic sensuality and Japanese minimalism, Georg Stool strikes a solitary pose.
Georg’s DNA is characterized by its slender wooden poles and rounded edges – crafted from light FSC-certified Oak. A braided leather strap keeps the soft, woolen cushion in place on the seat, fulfilling the material encounter of textile, skin and wood.
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. Chris 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.
We are a Danish design company with roots deeply grounded in Scandinavian design and tradition for good craftsmanship. We are owned by Jesper and Vibeke Panduro, who live with their two children in the Northern harbour city of Aalborg. This is where Skagerak was founded too, back in 1976, when the first dreams of making long-lasting design took form.
