Sofia Lagerkvist and Anna Lindgren – both from Sweden – founded the Stockholm-based design studio Front in 2004. Their work constantly questions the design process, whether through their ‘collaborations’ with animals or their experiments with advanced technology like in the project Sketch Furniture. They have developed objects for major design brands across the world and are represented by Galerie Kreo in Paris and Friedman Benda in New York. Their work can be found in the collection of the Vitra Design Museum, the MoMA of New York and the Victoria & Albert Museum in London.

Front

Numerous works by the creative duo Front are devoted to the systematic observation of sleeping or hibernating animals. This fascination inspired their design of a group of slumbering creatures – Resting Animals – whose poses exude a serene tranquillity. The Resting Cat is an ornamental ceramic figure with a peaceful presence that goes beyond the decorative to communicate a deep sense of contentment.
