Formens frigörelse – Konsthantverk och design under debatt i 1960-talets Sverige
Monica Förster’s first monograph is a rich and generous book that illustrates more than 15 years of successful collaborations with global brands such as Poltona Frau, De Padova, Cappelini, Tecno and Alessi. It includes previously unpublished sketches, renderings, models and exhibition work and offers a unique insight into Monica Förster’s thoughts and design processes. We also follow Monica Förster on her journey from her origins in the small village of Dorotea in Lappland, Sweden, to the limelight of the international design scene, bringing with her the poetry and craftsmanship from the region where she grew up.
Edited by Swedish design writer Hanna Nova Beatrice, and including texts by well established international writers such as Sam Grave (US), Cristina Morozzi (IT) and Mark Isitt (SE), Lateral Thinking gives the reader a rare glimpse into the work of one of our best known contemporary designers.
