Stockholm, Sweden

Swedish-born Sofia Lagerkvist, Charlotte von der Lancken, and Anna Lindgren comprise the design studio Front. They started collaborating in 2004 while they were still students at Konstfack University College of Arts, Crafts, and Design in Stockholm. Originally they started out as four, but Katja Sävström left the group in 2009.

Front's design objects often communicate a story about the process of creation, about the nature of the material, or about the expectations of the observer/user. With every new project, they challenge the role of the designers and the conventions of today’s design industry, integrating surprising elements such as magic tricks or living animals.

Front has developed projects for brands like Stelton, Gemla, Porro, Moroso, Booo, Established & Sons, and Moooi, as well as limited editions for galleries such as Galerie Kreo in Paris.
