Sweden’s prolific Monica Förster


The Furniture and Lights Fair in Stockholm is in full swing. Manufacturers and designers from all around Northern Europe are showcasing their best and most beautiful pieces of furniture. One designer that stands out from the crowd is Monica Förster, who has just received the Swedish Elle Decoration Magazine’s Designer of the Year award third time in a row. She is one of Sweden’s busiest designers, having worked with Volvo, Whirlpool, Cappellini, and other international companies. In addition to her rigorous work routine, she often exhibits at various places around the world. Pieces of her work have been exhibited at New York City’s MoMA and at the V&A Museum in London among others.
 
 Lullaby lampshade
 
Her graceful and reserved design language can be traced through her vast catalogue. Taking inspiration from the shaping techniques of the acclaimed sculptor Isamu Noguchi, Monica Förster created a series of pendant lights from sustainable materials for Danish lighting producer Lightyears. The Lullaby pendants are made from stone paper with ash lamellae and are crafted into pentagonal but pleasingly organic shapes.

Bird vase

The Bird vase designed for Bitossi has a sculptural shape and is intended to work either as a low vase or a sculpture for the table. The low stance of the vase ensures that you are able to see your conversation partner without any visual disturbances.

Kimono coffee table

The Kimono table’s form is inspired by the traditional Japanese garment of the same name, and its base is made of solid wood. The perfectly circular shaded glass top comes in various different colors, including the pictured blue one that was inspired by the Japanese indigo dyeing process.

Antelope chair

This fully solid ashwood construction chair was designed by Ms Förster for Swedese in 2007. The lines of it exude harmony and a sense of cleanliness. It is fully upholstered with either fabric or leather.  
 

Dorotea cutlery set
 
Gense’s tradition and craftsmanship comes together with understated Nordic design in the Dorotea cutlery collection. The utensils are designed with minimalism and superior balance in mind, resulting in a beautiful one-piece metal construction. The Dorotea Night collection is distinguished by its matte black titanium finish, and it was awarded "Best product for the set table of the year" by Elle Interiör in 2013.
