Staffan & Monique TollgårdFounders

Staffan & Monique Tollgård

Born out of a shared passion for design, the Design Group is run and managed by Inchbald-educated, husband-and-wife team, Staffan and Monique Tollgård.  A background in feature film and documentary production characterises their work: a commitment to the power of story-telling, to the narrative that their clients bring, to the history of the buildings in which they work and the shared stories of the design objects they curate in each interior.

As Creative Director, Staffan has crystallised his design ethos into two principles: the search for the Scandinavian notion of the distinctive ‘Red Thread’ or creative DNA in each project, and the commitment to the creation of ‘functional sculpture’.  These twin philosophies have culminated in the creation of a home for the best of contemporary design curated from around the world in their London-based Design Store and a new arm to the business as Staffan focuses on product design for leading international brands.

Monique leads the interior design arm of the company together with Inchbald-trained Kirsty Grosz.  Comprising three teams of architectural interior designers, technicians and support staff, the Design Group works on a variety of projects for private and developer clients, from large-scale new builds, listed refurbishments to decorative projects around the world.
