Named after the Danish word for ‘Wait’, the Vent stool was originally designed for museum-goers.
A place to have a seat while allowing the impressions to sink in. Now, Vent has developed into a two-seater with the same minimalist expression, the same strong craftsmanship and the same sculptural feature. The woven seat is made in Denmark in collaboration with ‘Blindes Arbejde’, a sheltered workshop for people who are blind or partially sighted.
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.
