Markus Johansson graduated in 2011 from HDK (School of Design and Crafts) Goteborg Sweden His studio is located in Central Goteborg where he specializes in design and the development of design of furniture, product, graphic and lighting. Markus works with both Swedish and international design companies and has won numerous awards which also includes his highly acclaimed Nest chair which was exhibited at The Museum of Art and Design, New York. Markus explains about his work with design and product development: "My goal is to create products that are different and unusual in shape as well as function. I try to find inspiration from numerous environments and by means of analyzing and processing, I conclude that Design, for me, has to be a perfect combination of construction function and form, which conveys emotions, that subtly affects us as humans, while simultaneously, enhances our daily experiences and also, embodies lasting values." His first collaboration with LE KLINT has resulted in a new series of lighting called CARRONADE originally based on the idea of a table lamp with a distinctive playful yet challenging shape, as a small cannon.
