Design StoryView More / View Less
Creator of some of the most internationally renowned objects in contemporary Swedish design today, Monica Förster grew up close to the Arctic circle in the very north of Sweden. Her work is characterized by a strong sense of pure form mixed with a never-ending curiosity for new materials and technology. Always trying to work in a cross-disciplinary way, she invents and renews typologies in industrial furniture and object design.
Seeing the importance of maintaining and developing tradition, Förster creates furniture and objects with a modern cut in old craft techniques.
Monica Förster Design Studio is based in Stockholm and works on an international level with companies such as Volvo, Tecno, Alessi, Cappellini, Poltrona Frau, De Padova, Bernhardt, Whirlpool, Georg Jensen, Eric Joergensen, Offecct, Swedese and Rörstrand.
Förster has been awarded many Swedish and international awards as the Designer of the Year and the prestigious Sweden’s Architect Association Award, The Golden Chair. Her work has been exhibited all over the world in museums and institutions such as Moma NY and VA Museum, London. Monica Förster has also been represented in The International Design Yearbook.
