Anita Johansen

Anita Johansen graduated from The Danish Design School in 2012, swiftly acquiring a reputation as a designer to watch. A process of simplification is at the heart of her work: “Adding to a design is easy, but to reduce the design until you only have the essentials in form and function is so much harder,” Anita explains. For an example of that philosophy in practice, take a look at Anita’s Daybed for Menu, a product of we love for its purity and calm. Anita has studied at the Aalto University in Helsinki and is drawn to Finnish culture: “I love their natural and simple approach towards design and life in general.”
