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.
“When I was younger I could not decide whether to devote myself to fashion or furniture design. Now I wanted to find out if I could design an item of furniture that combined my interests, that I could dress up in the way in which one dresses a torso”, Lisa explains. The fundamental idea was in place but convincing Design House Stockholm that the chair would suit their range took a while. Ten years had passed since Lisa last worked with them on her Trinity candleholder, and both parties had long thought about taking up their collaboration again.
