- Distinguishing features
Their designs investigate the history of a material and the functioning of a production process with a penchant for trompe l'œil.
Sofia Lagerkvist and Anna Lindgren are the members of the Swedish design studio Front. Their works are based on common discussions, explorations and experiments and they collaborate in all projects from initial ideas to the final product. Front’s design objects often communicate a story to the observer about the design process, about the material it is made of or about conventions within the design field. In their work they have assigned part of the making of design to animals, computers or machines. They have made a constantly changing interior, created objects with explosions, robotic furniture and a range of furniture inspired by their fascination with magic.
Front’s work is represented at Victoria & Albert Museum, M+, Nationalmuseum, Vitra Design Museum, MoMA and Centre Pompidou.
