Monica Forster

Monica Forster is strong, simple and poetic. Monica Forster is a Swedish designer that has gained international recognition for her ability to create modern, functional designs with poetic twist. She has infinite curiosity for new methods, material combinations and technologies.
In her work to create her first lamp series for Lightyears, Monica Förster has taken inspiration from the imaginations of children. She is fascinated by their open minds, their boundless imagination and their ability to create their own fantasy world.
In her design work, she fashions small 3D paper models. This intuitive, tangible working process helps her test odd, unexpected opportunities that were not necessarily part of the original considerations. In Monica’s opinion, paper models are a fine contrast to computer-generated images where everything appears to be perfect.
