Caroline Olsson was born in Eidskog, Norway. She is currently living in Oslo.

She graduated as a Teacher of Arts and Crafts at Oslo University College. Due to her strong interest in designing and creating in the workshop she decided to embark on a degree in Product Design at Akershus University College in 2008 where she is currently completing her Master degree.

Caroline’s main focus is the functionality of the furniture she designs, which is prominent in her products. She enjoys experimenting with a variety of materials, though she is especially fond of using Norwegian wood in her work.
