Anna Ebbesen, Design Manager for Retail

‘I work as Design Manager for Retail, and amongst others tasks, manage the collaboration between Kvadrat and Raf Simons. I enjoy the diversity in my job which allows me to work with such a diverse group of inspiring and passionate people.

Kvadrat as an organisation is quite flat – one minute you are in the warehouse speaking to a colleague in the stock department and the next minute, you are collaborating with a designer on creative developments. There are these amazing contrasts and we are all part of this constantly evolving and creative environment where everybody plays an import role’

Jan-Simon Treuner, Retail Sales

'In every single thing I do, I believe that we are inspiring people to create their personalised home identity. I believe in creative thinking and authenticity. The way we give individuality is to produce the best qualities, timeless design with a long life – character. Which is what happens to make the most beautiful textiles and rugs.

Kvadrat is the most honest way of expressing personality - that's the reason why I am working for Kvadrat'
