Forestier

A design-driven future is how Forestier describes its current trajectory, one that reaches far into the Parisian past given its origins centered around the botanical arts and lightweight metal wire. The company’s founder, Bernard Forestier, led the charge of weaving wire into beautiful symmetries to create a delicately refined style of lighting he gathered into the Fil De Fer Collection in 1992. Since then, their list of avant-garde designs made of wire and other materials is envisioned by some of design’s heavyweights. Global Lighting gladly distributes them in North America.

A design-driven future is how Forestier describes its current trajectory, one that reaches far into the Parisian past given its origins centered around the botanical arts and lightweight metal wire. The company’s founder, Bernard Forestier, led the charge of weaving wire into beautiful symmetries to create a delicately refined style of lighting he gathered into the Fil De Fer Collection in 1992. Since then, their list of avant-garde designs made of wire and other materials is envisioned by some of design’s heavyweights. Global Lighting gladly distributes them in North America. Designers who have flocked to the French company to create lighting for the brand are Laurence Brabant, Sébastian Bergne, Noé Duchaufour-Lawrance, Emmanuel Gallina, Élise Fouin, Christian Ghion, Neil Poulton, Normal Studio, Philippe Daney, and the talented product-design duo Nicolas Daul and Julien Demanche. Design superstar Arik Levy has also created a number of fixtures for Forestier in both wire and fabric; and La Fabrica, the think-tank created by Benetton, has several fixtures in the company’s collections.
