Resting Bear. Front, 2018 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 largest is a knit-covered bear that can be used for a variety of functions, such as a stool, ottoman or backrest. This product was designed by Front Sofia Lagerkvist and Anna Lindgren – both from Sweden – founded the Stockholm-based design studio Front in 2004. Known for their constant questioning of the design process, they have developed objects for major design brands across the world.
