BY MAY is a design studio and brand by designers Johanna Örn and Maria Bergström. BY MAY creates unique and functional products and accessories for the home with focus on print design, colours and a variety of materials. By May works with small limited editions as well as productions of larger scale.
We work with all stages of the design process- from the first idea to development of a new product. Our vision is to create products that combines traditional techniques and craftsmanship with new design thinking - to create functional and beautiful products. A source of inspiration is to combine our Scandinavian design heritage with Japanese influences, which often have a lot in common. We also pay a lot of attention to details and high quality of the materials. We believe that simplicity and quality of good design lasts in the long run.
Our studio is located in Stockholm, Sweden. Maria Bergström is a textile designer educated at Swedish School of Textiles and founder of Studio Maria Bergström, designing textile collections, wallpapers and print design. Johanna Örn has been working as a designer for several clients since graduating from Konstfack in 2003. She is also founder of Siluett Frost, designing decorative Window Film. Maria and Johanna are also freelance designers and part of designer group “Scandinavian Pattern Collection”.
