Front Design
Swedish ,

Design studio Front breaks conventions of the design process. “We always question what we do and why we do it,” says designer Charlotte von der Lancken. “There have to be other values than making cheap chairs.” The designer met collaborators Sofia Lagerkvist and Anna Lindgren while studying “hardcore” industrial design at Sweden’s Konstfack College, and together they now create dynamic works, like vases wrapped in layers of foil that can be stripped away, a table that collapses over the course of months, or a light bulb that is actually a bubble. They have also worked with animals, allowing rats to chew away at wallpaper or casting dog footprints in snow, and with technology, using motion-capture software and a 3-D printer to create chairs based on sketches made in the air.
