Förstberg Ling är ett arkitektkontor som startades 2015 av Björn Förstberg och Mikael Ling. Med bas i Malmö arbetar de med både arkitektur, inredning och möbler.
Projekten kännetecknas av en vilja att renodla uttrycket till ett par genomgående och väl omhändertagna detaljer, där materialvalet har lika stor betydelse som rummet. De jobbar helst med material som känns levande och varma, oavsett om de är enkla eller exklusiva. Med en textur som skapar skuggspel eller ytor som tål att patineras.
