Beyond Black by Monica Förster Design Studio

Monica Förster Design Studio extended their collaboration with Bosnian furniture manufacturer Zanat with Beyond Black, a sleek, sultry exhibition that merges the art of Bosnian craft with Sami spiritualism. The wood carving gives nod to traditional Bosnian techniques, while Sami-inspired pewter thread embroidery wraps itself around the the wood. Combining the two is unexpected, but leads to an interesting pairing that adds a contemporary twist.
