For her first sofa collection exclusive to DWR, Danish designer Chris Halstrøm started with one goal: Create a big, soft piece to really relax in. With the Kapsel Armchair (2021), she achieved just that. Piled with plush, oversized cushions, Kapsel is an inviting, cozy spot for any lounging position: curling up, leaning back, or stretching out for an afternoon nap. Its sumptuous cushions are nested within a sleek wraparound wood frame for a beautiful contrast of hard and soft – a detail that makes Kapsel look good from any angle. Assembled in U.S.A. with domestic and imported parts.
For Chris Liljenberg Halstrøm, inspiration comes from observation. “If I want to design objects for real people, I have to know about them,” she explains. Born in Glostrup, Denmark, to a Swedish mother and Danish father, Halstrøm is also naturally influenced by her Nordic roots and combines this background with an interest in the spiritual austerity of Japanese design.
