Marcus Johansson (1982) graduated from HDK (School of Design and Crafts in Gothenburg, Sweden) in 2011. Today, he collaborates with both Swedish and international design firms, as well as in his own Markus Johansson Design Studio, with products, furniture and interior design. The studio focuses on sophisticated design with simplicity, trying to find inspiration from different environments ranging from the human to the artifact through various analyzes and processes. He is represented at the Museum of Arts and Design in New York. "My vision is to combine design, function and form to reach completeness in the product. Environmental awareness is of course important, but should not hinder creativity. For me, design is about conveying an emotion that affects humans, and enhances everyday life." The table Mopsy is manufactured by Karl Andersson & Söner and was first shown in 2016 at the Stockholm Furniture Fair.
