Hello, my name is Lene. I’m the person behind ToniKjeld ltd. I’m a textile designer specialised in surface print. I love all things colour, pattern, flowers, nature, my family, taking photos, exploring. I’m at the moment placed in beautiful New Zealand, but Denmark is my home country.
TONIKJELD ltd is a design studio creating surface prints and products for interior and exterior.
I live and work from my base in Wellington, New Zealand, where I moved in September 2011. I’m surrounded by sea and mountains. As nature brings peaceful inspiration it also brings wilderness with Wellington being the most windy city in the world! Calm waters often meet it’s windy contrast and the scene can change in a moment.
Contrast and change is a major factor in my work. As an example of this is State of Flow wallpaper collection that consists of 8 different repeat patterns that can be merged together into one flowing pattern.
The design process is key for every product and always includes handdrawings in mixed media and most often combined with computer.
Paper Cut and Small Makings are acessory labels. With the urge to make by hand, these sub labels very well describes my passion for small and unique productions. Everything is handmade with love and the love for detail.
FROM MY TABLE
I work from my studio in Seatoun, but depending on the product or project, I team up with architects or interior designers to complete and professionalize the specific works.
I look to meet all clients needs and wishes. That be the very end user or if a retailer has certain needs to be able to run our products, I’m happy to solve any issues that may be.
Please don’t hesitate to contact me, I will do my very best to assist you.
