It started with a fascination for MAXJENNY’s design and creativity many years ago. -“I told Lotta Ahlvar, CEO at the Swedish Fashion Council, that I would love to work with MAXJENNY. It felt so right to create wallpaper, tables and splashguards for kitchens with her designs and thanks to Lotta Ahlvar that connected us, we have now started an exciting collaboration”, continues Camilla Näslund, Concept Developer at Designmäklarna. “MAXJENNY had the big sweeping and avant-garde style that we were looking for. Very much like art! We will supply interior products for both MAXJENNY’s shop online and for her shop in Copenhagen this spring”, says a very proud Camilla Näslund.
-“The circle closes for me with this exciting collaboration with Designmäklarna in Umeå. I am a furniture designer from the beginning and to be working on a parallel track with both fashion and interior design is something I wanted to do for a long time”, MAXJENNY says. “It feels great to work with such passionate people and I am very pleased with the quick decision-making that a small local manufacturing company like Designmäklarna have. I love it when things move on quickly and that is the case working with Designmäklarna. I also see an opportunity for our products to be successful in Japan where my clothes can be purchased in many of the big department stores.”, says a content MAXJENNY.
MAXJENNY’s new collection together with Designmäklarna, with tables, wallpapers, tray tables, countertops and splashguards for kitchens, will be launched at Electrolux Home, Umeå on April 6, 2011.
