From the hand which unconsciously doodles during a phone call, lines of thought spring out. Innocent reflections which go through an accumulative process, unconscious pen strokes, doodles; in the beginning there is just a line and in the end there is a complete, complex piece. Hence the embroidery. The sofa design takes its shape from a folded blanket. The seat is delicate, deep in thought, armrests are soft, the sofa welcoming. The quilting on the upholstery follows the lines of the doodle making it three-dimensional. It is a welcoming thought, a daydream.

Design by Front, 2013
Sofia Lagerkvist and Anna Lindgren are the members of the Swedish design group 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.
