You may have wondered, (if you don’t already know), why MAXX Design is called MAXX. MAXX Design received its name courtesy of a very special… well, bear. The legendary story goes: (yes, this is going somewhere) that Dermot, our Managing Director – after years of moaning about how his parents never bought him a teddy bear, was finally bought a teddy bear by his long suffering wife, Katie. The real MAXX bear is now 35 years old and Dermot has never let him go since – in fact, he’s responsible for the whole MAXX brand. Quite an achievement – clearly he is no ordinary bear.
