Monica Förster for Nola


Monica Förster has created tables inspired by the shapes of nature; snow crystals and sun beams. Each piece is constructed from a tabletop and base made in laser-cut metal, and each is perforated with shapes that catch light and cast bold shadow.

The tables come in different heights and finishings, for both outside and inside environments. Orange, grey and white are the standard colours.
