We are Axel Lindmarker and Jens Marklund, two Swedish designers. We met in the fall of 2013 and immediately struck up a friendship. Since then we have collaborated on a lot of projects and won some awards. Our collaboration always seemed natural, so we haven't really seen any point in parting ways. Instead we have gotten closer, moved around to different places in the world, working on different projects. You could say we definitely are in this for the long haul.
The name Lindlund is derived from our surnames. We have simply removed the similar part (mark) and ended up with Lindlund, which coincidentally has an actual meaning. Lind is Swedish for the linden tree, also known as small-leaved lime. Lund on the other hand is a Swedish word for a grove. So together we form a grove of linden trees.
