The Umbrella Ceiling

It will never rain on your design parade with the Umbrella ceiling fixture, designed by Monica Förster, amongst your lighting choices. Available in pure white, graphite black and opal green painted acrylic with a matte acrylic diffuser, the top can be ordered fully painted or partially painted, the latter for 30% up-light. The Umbrella is included in our ECCO Collection of Performance-Driven Office + Retail Lighting. ECCO, an acronym for [E]nergy-efficient, [C]ompliant; for [C]ommercial [O]rnamentation, is a collection of light fixtures built to enhance the architectural attributes of commercial, office or retail settings.

Designer

Monica Förster Design Studio is the visionary playground of the designer of the same name. Based in Stockholm, she grew up near the Arctic Circle in the Northland, which infuses her work with a strong sense of purity of form mixed with an unbounded curiosity for cutting-edge materials and technology. Intermingling the disciplines of industrial, furniture and product design, she counts a storied list of companies as clients—Volvo, Tecno, Alessi, Cappellini, Poltrona Frau, Bernhardt and Whirlpool.

Swedish manufacturer Zero Lighting, whose products Global Lighting distributes in North America, is also one of Förster’s collaborators. Her Umbrella pendant is one of the standouts in the ECCO Collection we sell in the U.S. and Canada. Förster has received a number of international awards, such as the "Designer of the Year,” and has exhibited in some of the worlds most lauded design institutions, including the Museum of Modern Art in New York City and the Victoria & Albert Museum in London.

The trendsetter’s work has been featured in Domus magazine; Dwell magazine; Vanity Fair, Italy; Architectural Digest, Germany; Wallpaper magazine; Architectural Digest, Spain; Elle Interior, Sweden; Elle Decoration, UK; and The New York Times. Her monograph, Lateral Thinking, published in 2013, contains more than 15 years of innovative design. That's considerable creative energy between two covers!
