Nina Tolstrup’s living space is furnished with a combination of pieces that she’s designed herself, like the Pallet chair she created for the Ten, 10, X projectat 100% Design, and the classics she’s collected from the likes of Kjærholm (in red leather) and Eames.
Designed for Danish company Trip Trap, the Pilot Hanger (2003) is made from pressed oak or teak with a stainless steel hook. Very Scandinavian, very beautiful, and far better for blouses and blazers than what the dry cleaner provides.
Created for the 2006 Ten, 10, X exhibition at 100% Design, the Pallet Concept chair (2006) appears to have developed a life of its own. The idea is simple: Take pallets found in the street, download assembly instructions from Tolstrup’s website, and refashion them into a simple, elegant range of furniture.
