Hallway is a series of sculptural design objects that, with a playful and experimental approach to form and material compositions, focus on the small functions of the entrance hall: the key, the hanger, the tying of shoes, the mirror, the light, the umbrella.
Hallway is designed with the intention to create contrasting meetings between materials, emphasizing and enhancing the individual characteristics of the materials both visually and tactically.
The objects are designed in simple and uncomplicated shapes where the honesty and practical placement of the materials are in center. For example, all of the objects meets the floor with a solid polyurethane rubber block, as rubber plugs on a chairs legs. The objects are designed to be able to stand by them self but also together as members of a united family.

Astrid Tolnov (B.1985) is a Danish designer living and working in Copenhagen, DK. She is practicing furniture design and object design based on an interest in exploring materials, shapes, function, tactility and colors and what happens when they are connected in an unexpected way. By constantly researching how different forms of crafts are practiced and constantly seeking new knowledge about working methods, materials and functions, new unique design objects are developed that are both related to the Danish design tradition and contemporary design solutions.
Belgian design is traditionally connected with its territory, both in terms of the use of natural materials and their corresponding colour palette. In addition, the international design scene was overwhelmed by the completely white minimalistic interiors in the nineties and the Scandinavian design trend with lots of light coloured wood and soft tones during the past decade.
To conquer the monotonous globalised, Instagram-driven interior design trends and to bring some optimism in these rather dark times, the international and Belgian design scenes nowadays fully embrace a vibrant colour scheme. Moreover colours are not only fun, but they also affect both our emotions and physical wellbeing. Or as Le Corbusier said: “Colour is an element as necessary as water and fire.”
Faithful to the Belgian context, most designers work with natural materials, which they manually transform into perfectly imperfect, tactile eye-catchers. These qualities can be found in ceramics and textile, but also in pieces from reclaimed materials that had a previous life. By integrating these unique or small-scale production pieces from independent designer-makers in an interior, you’ll bring their personal quests together into the unique story of your home.
