Resting Cat

By Vitra

£169.00

  • Description

    Resting Animals are the result of a recent research project by Front focussing on the close connection between humans and figurative objects. The design duo asked randomly selected people to identify the most emotionally enriching and meaningful objects in their lives. The majority of answers turned out to be animal figures that were perceived to have personalities, specific attributes or a shared history. Previous works by Front have been devoted to the systematic observation of how various animals sleep or hibernate. This interest is now expressed in a group of slumbering creatures – Resting Animals – whose poses exude a serene tranquillity.

    Resting Animals not only bring a touch of nature into the home; their peaceful presence goes beyond the visual to communicate a sense of contentment and companionship.

    Great design is the effect of choosing the right methodology. The design agency Front is convinced that thorough research, in combination with a creative approach, is the best way to create design expressions that can have both high impact and longevity. Founded in 2004, today the Stockholm-based agency consists of Sofia Lagerkvist (born 1972) and Anna Lindgren (born 1974). Front reached international fame through their collaboration with Moooi, which resulted in the well-known “Horse lamp”, but they have also worked with, among others, Kartell, Moroso and Ikea. In 2010, they received one of the world’s largest design awards, the Torsten and Wanja Söderberg Prize. The same year, they were also awarded Designer of the Year by Elle Interiör. For Swedese, they have designed the sofa “Button”. With inspiration from the Swedese archives, they used the company’s strong connection with bentwood, which then became the starting point of their design process. The wooden buttons makes it possible to add functions to the sofa, by attaching accessories and even other pieces of furniture.
