Lampshade Bulb for Booo
Front was inspired by the long life of a LED lamp. Its burning time of almost ten years makes it possible to create a lamp you never need to change the bulb of. The inner dome softens the light and creates the illusion of a lamp without a bulb, blurring the boundary between lightsource and lampshade.

Chameleon Cupboard for Porro
A colour changing cupboard. The new Chameleon unit is a magic volume, constantly opening on itself like the game of the Chinese boxes, changing appearance and revealing new finishes. To be used as a container for the bedroom or the living, it consists of a central wooden crate, covered by leather layers, which used as hinges, allows it to turn and be revolved, changing its colour and look according to the specific mood.

Surface Tension Lamp for Booo
A bubble is brief, and bursts at your touch. But while it lasts, it catches the light and reflects the room like a multi-coloured temporary structure. Front wanted to create a constantly changing lamp that combines the most ephemeral of lampshades with a LED light source that will last for 50000 hours. In the time it takes the LED to burn out, the lamp will have had 3 million different globe shades.

 

 

 

Gentle Chair for Porro
A chair in the shape of two joined arches. Made of wood and upholstered leather.

 

Doodle Sofa for Moroso
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.
