Danish Disrupted with Jonathan Rose Design

Danish Disrupted for Decorex International 2019.

Have you ever wondered how creative collaborations come about?

The latest one for myself and Jonty Rose began its journey at DesignJunction in 2018 where we were both exhibiting with Design Nation.

From the start we realised that we shared a goal to create exceptional products for our adventurous client base, and we thought that together we could double the impact of our work.

What do you think?

We worked on this project for almost a year, and were delighted to introduce the resulting bespoke chairs and stools at Decorex International in October 2019.

My statement vivid colours and exacting weaves fit perfectly into Jonathan’s danish design, in this original pair of functional artworks. They are available in further colour options and fabric designs.

Woven using my signature Krokbragd pattens, these intricate, timeless panels are time consuming to weave, and are frequently exhibited as textile art. (At the time of posting Orange Wave handwoven panel has been selected for the The Royal West of England Academy Annual Open Exhibition).
Don’t expect to see too many of the originals, but browse some of my other handwoven designs here.

We both see this collaboration as an ongoing partnership alongside our individual projects and here are our thoughts on it so far.

Jonty: “One thing that is great for me is the number of people Angie knows who love quality. It has been a delight working with someone with such energy and capability (and not needing me to do any tiresome mansplaining!) I hope we can do more together.”

Angie: “Collaborating with Jonty on this project has really opened my eyes to the potential of our combined skills. Both playing to our strengths, we’ve moved pretty quickly, and have found a way to best show our strongest designs together, whilst maintaining the individual style that made us want to work together in the first place. Jonty is really easy-going, entirely professional and his expertise in managing schedules brought this project in ahead of our initial deadlines” 

We both loved engaging with visitors and clients to Decorex International in October 2019, but if you missed us there and would like discuss this project please drop me a line through my contact page.
