Design Within Reach Sommer Chaise
Copenhagen-based designer Chris Halstrøm has a special knack for creating things for people she’ll probably never meet yet making them feel as if she knows them somehow. With her Sommer Outdoor Collection (2019), which she designed for DWR, Halstrøm wanted to give people the experience of indoor furniture in outdoor spaces. "I was intrigued by the idea of bringing the look of paper-cord weaving, often found on Danish indoor furniture, to the outdoors, but in a weather-safe material," she says. "I wanted it to feel natural, and open up that wall between indoors and out." This duality gives the collection an openness that she says makes it very easy to live with. "I find it interesting to create something that people can read their own stories into, and make it their own. For me, furniture is at its most interesting when you see it being enjoyed by people." Made in Indonesia.
