JOHANNA THE DESIGNER!
„Everyday life presents me with many sources of inspiration. You can discover the most varied designs, combinations of materials, colours and styles. Combining these, and trying out new things is what it means for me to work creatively and out of the box.“
-- Johanna the designer
WHAT DOES UPCYCLING MEAN FOR YOU?
For me, sustainability means making something new from things which already exist, continuing to use these, and thus counteracting the ‘throwaway society’ in which we live.
WHAT WERE THE FIRST STEPS TOWARDS SKANBO COLLECTION?
First of all, I asked myself which articles are important in everyday use, and which can actually be cut out in practice. The material of the inflatables is easy to work with and offers many design possibilities.
WHAT IS THE GREATEST CHALLENGE WITH THE COLLECTION?
Trying to “keep it simple” – Everyday objects should fulfil their function. Reducing things to the basics is what we are putting in focus here.
WHAT DOES SUCCESS MEAN FOR YOU?
For me, success means doing what I enjoy above all. Creativity and freedom when working are important to me; when something good and useful comes out as a result – even better!
WHERE DO YOU SEE JOHANNA IN TEN YEARS?
I’ll see what life brings: maybe even my own business and label! Dream it. Wish it. Do it.
