Monica Förster
Design Studio

We use poetic design philosophy to merge form and function with emotion and story. Our aim is to transform the utilitarian into the unforgettable, and the functional into the fascinating.

"We believe design is more than creating functional objects, it's about infusing a sense of poetry and artistry into the objects and spaces we create."

Jag ärvde en skog
Monica Förster x Ogeborg

I inherited a forest

I never wanted to come here
always longed to get away
As soon as I could
I traveled out into the world
and when I got home it wasn’t
voluntarily but reluctantly

But my father died
and I inherited a forest
it drew me here again
to the mountains, the colors and the shapes now I won’t come home
reluctantly but voluntarily
