The foundation also aims to expose art and design, where we identify, promote, buy, and collect arts from the artists that will present legacy for next generation. We acquired and bought the works of art such as the original work by Nadežda Petrović from 1899, two original works by Milan Konjević from 1954, artwork made by Jovana Stojanović from the Faculty of Applied Arts in Belgrade (Calligraphy and Typeface Design academic study course) in the class of Associate Professor Jana Oršolić, original artwork by Victor Vasarely from 1983, and artwork by Dunja Jung from 2022.

Apothecary is an online premium and luxury drugstore, focused on offering premium and top-quality skincare, face, body and hair care products. We want to change and enrich our market with new products. At the same time, we want to present quality products in a different way, different from the way that is common on the pharmaceutical and cosmetic market. That’s why everyone at Apothecary is dedicated to strict discipline and fine details. We do not compromise and if the product or material does not meet our criteria or industry standards, then we will not even offer such a product on the Apothecary website. Everything must be simple, clean, and precise. Apothecary was created at the beginning of 2020 when marketing agency Foster + Svensson created an e-commerce and communication platform, which was recognized by the leading pharmaceutical companies in Serbia, both manufacturers and pharmacies. We realized that our platform is significantly different from others and that we can freely present it as independent, i.e., to be not just an e-commerce product off the shelf, but to really be an operational site. That’s how we created Apothecary. From an idea to a real operating company. Apothecary offers only original products, of proven quality and from reliable manufacturers. We cooperate and purchase products directly from manufacturers, suppliers, and distributors. Within its offer, Apothecary offers various products from brands such as Bayer, Thorne, Biopharma, Chicco, Eucerin, Orthomol, Solgar, Hemofarm, Merz, Zeiss, L’Oréal, La Roche-Posay, Vichy, Biotherm, Clarins, Marvis, Bvlgari, Cartier, Dior, Estée Lauder, Clinique, Lancôme, Shiseido, YSL, Kérastase, Lancaster.
