DESIGN HOUSE STOCKHOLM TORSO CHAIR BLACK (EX-DISPLAY)
Created for Swedish brand Design House Stockholm by Lisa Hilland, the Torso chair is a fusion of Lisa's passion for fashion and design. Like a bare torso, a chair can be "dressed" in various styles of fabric, each of which changes its character. In this design the chair's frame is dressed with a leather corset with two buckles at the back.
The framework for the chair is produced industrially in a factory in Sweden, while the leather "attire" is woven by hand at another factory. A dynamic design, which is also stackable, the Torso chair suits the home just as well as the public sector.
Currently available in several configurations. Leather back is removable.
Dimensions: L 55 cm, D 52 cm, H 84 cm. Material: Genuine leather, lacquered metal, natural ash plywood. All parts manufactured in Sweden.
Please note: we have x2 of these chairs available as ex display models priced accordingly but in great condition and barely used. Edinburgh collection or we can quote for delivery.
About the designer:
Lisa Hilland creates contemporary design with a poetic twist, combining modern high-tech production techniques with artisan quality craftsmanship. After graduating from Central St Martin's College of Art and Design, she worked for ten years as a designer in London before setting up her own studio in Sweden in 2005.
“As a designer I have a great love of materials and how they influence how we perceive an object. I am constantly experimenting with the qualities of materials, making use of them in new combinations. Excellent design triggers our emotions and according to me, materials have a great part to play while designing - or as I call it - giving an object a soul that can be loved.”
