MONSTRUM was founded in 2003 by the playful souls Ole Barslund Nielsen and Christian Jensen, who met through the Danish theater world, where they build set designs.

The idea for the company came when the kindergarten where Ole’s five-year-old son, Sixten Gustav, went to needed a new playground. Ole was part of the group of parents who was going to select the playground equipment.

“We offered to build a playground for the kindergarten that took its inspiration in set design at theaters and thus offered both stimulation of the fantasy as well as of the physical body. It became a great success among the children, parents and employees and led to the founding of MONSTRUM,” says Ole.

Unique Playgrounds

At MONSTRUM we design and produce unique playgrounds with a focus on artistic, design-related and architectural quality. We create thematic playgrounds that fascinate and inspire both adults and children.

All our products are made out of wood and handmade in our workshop in Hvidovre. Our skilled craftsmen and designers work closely together throughout process, to ensure that our playgrounds and playground equipment is fun, safe and unique.

Why play in a playhouse, if you can play in a moon rocket, a submarine, a giant snail shell, a clown head or a Trojan horse?

With a background in art and design we create playground elements, which is not just a playhouse, slide or swing, but elements that will start the play by being a room where there is plenty of room for the imagination.






The goal of DANISH™ is to promote Danish architecture and design in a broad perspective, and demonstrate all the potentials in these fields.
