During this year's Heimtextil fair, the Artifort Suit chair designed by Monica Förster was on display at the Trends 24 / 25 exhibition created by Augmented Weaving. Augmented Weaving is an experimental research project around the technique of jacquard weaving and digital forms of craft. It is an exploration of physical, digital and virtual tools in textile material and shape creation. Based on their knowledge of physical craft, but with the aim of exploring new workflows with digital tools, Augmented Weaving applied their experimental working methods to the Suit chair. Artifort is very proud that Suit was at the centre of this innovative project.

Strong, restrained and poetic. Monica Förster (1966), creator of some of the most internationally renowned objects in contemporary Swedish design today, grew up close to the Arctic circle in the very north of Sweden. Her work is characterized by a strong sense of pure form mixed with a never- ending curiosity for new materials and technology. Always trying to work in a cross-disciplinary way, she invents and renews typologies in industrial, furniture and object design. Her talent for creativity and design blossomed during her studies at two of Sweden's largest design colleges, Beckmans and Konstfack. In 1999 she founded her own Monica Förster Design Studio in Stockholm. Förster has won numerous awards for her work, such as Designer of the Year, and has been exhibited around the world in museums and institutions such as the Museum of Modern Art in New York.
