Who is behind Swane design?
Actually, I'm not surprised it's
Selly Wane. I met this very energetic and dynamic woman, while in German
language course, a few months after I moved to Germany. We lived in the
same dorm, and everyone called her Mama Selly because of the central
role she played to pull us together and to ensure that a comfortable
atmosphere prevailed. Selly's high pitced voice was an intergrated part
of the corridor.."Hey guys, let's eat something together", she invited
us to dinner, at least once a week. She remembered every birthday,
organizing a small gathering for the birthday child. his was how I got t
attend the shortest birthday in my life: 30 minutes! We were all either
busy with exams or with a summer job and had completey forgotten it was
Mustafa's birhtday. Selly still managed tobring everybody for 30
minutes! There was food and music for 30 minutes! .. Her caring nature
was the reason why we gave her the nickname "welfare bureau". Her
talent to build bridges between people certainly played a role in the
creation of design Swane.
