With the new Button Sofa, Front Design has found inspiration in the Swedese archives expressing the Scandinavian heritage that is so present in the company’s history as well as in the current collection. A unique sofa that shows the expert use of crafted wood.
The wooden buttons on this sofa makes it possible to attach accessories and give the sofa additional functions. We love this sofa, its truly originally yet carries so much of the Scandinavian design ethos from years gone by.
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.
