With a Swedish mother and Danish father Christina Liljenberg Halstrøm shows her Nordic roots in her furniture through a minimalistic approach and choice of materials, like wood, leather and wool. Function is always the starting point and dictates the idiom of the finished pieces.
Christina Liljenberg Halstrøm is currently living and working in Copenhagen, Denmark. She did her initial studies of design and art in Stockholm, Sweden and graduated in 2007 from The Royal Danish Academy, School of Design, Copenhagen, Denmark.
Educated from The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts, School of Design in 2005 with additional studies at Rhode Island School of Design in USA, my focus as a textile designer is on colours and patterns. All my projects and collaborations are centred around the sensation of colours and patterns, which I strive to implement in the design, to give them a function rather than being pure decoration. Before setting up my own design studio in 2012, I worked seven years as a textile designer for the French fashion company EPICE developing colours and patterns, and overseeing production in India. The use of materials and patterns in fashion have elements that inspire my work in other design fields.
