By joining The Club,
Designer Lisa Hilland dreamt of creating furniture that combined both of her interests – fashion and design – in a self-evident manner. After a great deal of thought she came up with the Torsochair designed for Design House Stockholm.
The Torso framework is produced industrially in a factory in Sweden while the leather is woven by hand at another factory. The combination of hi-tech and lo-tech, framework and attire, creates a notable dynamic.
This is a design that suits the home just as well as the public sector.
The chairs are readily stackable and Design House Stockholm's intention is to make further attire for Torso available in the future. This will enable purchasers to choose the character or “dress” that best suits their environment.
As a self-proclaimed ‘Publishing House for Scandinavian Design,’ Design House Stockholm facilitates innovative Scandinavian design from a range of renowned and upcoming designers.
Rather than selecting a designer to make a specific product, all designers are invited to bring their personal ideas for everything from development to production. Design House Stockholm look for products that add something new to their genre, products with personality and character.
