Story of Monies

Story of Monies

Monies was founded in Copenhagen in 1973. The company was born from an interest and love for unconventional natural materials and avantgarde design. Since then, Monies has grown to become a brand that is known and admired for its bold and extravagant designs.

2023 was a milestone for Monies. It marked an anniversary of five decades and the beginning of a new era with Karl Monies, son of founders and creative minds Gerda and Nikolai Monies, as lead and creative director. And so, the story continues with second generation and a clear vision.

“We invent our own future based on the past. I have new concepts and ideas to manifest, but always with the utmost respect for Monies’ history and DNA.” Karl Monies

Our methodology is simple:

Keep nature’s uncompromising design when possible. Appreciate its unconventional compositions and obey its relentless determination. All materials have their own individual expression and story to tell, and it is our task to convey the story.
