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 Interior 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
