MDM Talks #2: An interview with Johan Ansander
In this episode, we talk with the 2020 Konstfack graduate Johan Ansander. In 2021 Johan launched his chair Maximus with the Swedish furniture company Blå Station. Maximus is based on his graduation project from Konstfack University of Arts, Crafts and Design.
This interview is part of a series of talks called Ex-Works Reconnect. In this series, we interview design graduates from different Swedish Design Colleges. We talk about the Swedish education system, collaborations, and what it´s like to work as a new designer in the furniture industry. All interviewed designers have been featured in Möbeldesignmuseum´s exhibitions Ex-Works 2020 or Ex-Works 2022.
MDM Talks #9: We talked with the designer Emma Wikner. In 2022 Emma graduated from Konstfack. For her graduation project, Vita Sannar, she designed a Cabinet made from CNC-milled MDF boards. The uniquely designed piece was inspired by the swirly patterns in the sand created by waves.
