Doodle Sofa by Front and CVDLAB for Moroso.
Why Front and CVDLAB? Front was founded by 3 ladies: Sofia Lagerkvist, Charlotte von der Lancken and Anna Lindgren. Charlotte van der Lancken stopped in 2015 as partner of Front and has now her own designstudio CVDLAB. Aparently Doodle was designed when the three were still together.
We doodle absent mindedly – doodling is a kind of half-conscious creative work. It is both a distraction, and also thought to help you concentrate on whatever you are doing at the same time. All three members of Front used doodles they had made during design meetings to create the sofa’s pattern. The decoration is a kind of by-product of Front’s creative process, inscribed onto the folded half circle of the sofa’s form
Faux Wooden Sofa
When I posted Wooden Bench in front of The Nordic Light Hotel in 2008 I wasn’t aware that in fact it was a Faux Wooden Sofa, until I read this blogpost of D E C E P T O L O G Y:….It was a sofa designed by Front Design for Moroso. However it was not made of wood at all. Its upholstery was a faux wooden print. Cleverly decepted!
The same deception as with the faux marble chair by Maurizio Galante.
About Design Front
As the 3 ladies of Design Front, Sofia Lagerkvist, Charlotte von der Lancken (until 2015) and Anna Lindgren based in Stockholm, are so kind as to have their group photo available at their website. I feature “Das Dreimäderlhaus” with pleasure – also in our category Chairchez La Femme in the sense of “Look which ladies design the chair”;-)
