About Kajsa Willner : Kajsas world consists of daily bringing new ideas and concepts into peoples lives that leave them affected by an experience around a product or an interior. The clients and assignments vary from big to small, everything from developing a new product to making an entire interior project from idea to final decor and installation. Kajsa also has her own collection that consists of objects with a more experimental approach, produced in one offs or limited edition and possible to buy directly from her webshop or by sending an email for a special request. The hallmark of Studio Kajsa Willner is to dare, to explore and to in a playful way challenge the preconception of what design is and should be. Why? because Kajsa strives to constantly continue to surprise, amaze and make people happy by giving them unique design experiences.
STATEMENT OF ART:
"Everything that I do is created by a lust driven approach of exploring surfaces, materials, techniques, combinations and much more which I hope is reflected in what I do and create.

In my work and for my clients I strive to bring forward the beauty in the contrast of making both objects that are valuing the unfinished - the rough as much as perfection - the refined.”
