Monica Förster Design Studio will be launching 15 new projects with four major Swedish furniture companies, Swedese, Offecct Skultuna, Bolon and Bosnian company Zanat – a collaboration that started in 2015. Monica Förster is the creative director of both Swedese and Zanat. Zanat’s successful move from historical and traditional furniture into contemporary high end-design – without losing its soul and craftsmanship – has earned it several awards and international recognition. Monica Förster has designed eight products for Zanat and selected the other designers and architects for the new collection.
Monica Förster is one of the most renowned Swedish designers today. She is based in Stockholm but grew up close to the Arctic Circle in the very north of Sweden. Her work is characterised by a strong sense of pure form mixed with 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.
