Designer Veneers At Superior Woodcraft
In Part 1 of Designer Veneers At Superior Woodcraft we introduce you to some wonderful new composite wood surfaces (wood veneers). These wood veneers were developed by Ettore Sottsass. Our first introduction will be wood veneers designed by Ettore Sottsass. Ettore Sottsass was an Italian architect and designer during the 20th century. His body of work included furniture, jewelry, glass, lighting, home objects and office machine design, as well as many buildings and interiors. In Part II we introduce you to veneer designs by Front Design.
Sofia Lagerkvist and Anna Lindgren are the members of the Swedish design studio 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.
Their design is not typically Scandinavian – it is experimental. Front plays with visual effects and their designs aim to provoke, at the same time creating poetic worlds. Front uses experimental design processes, with rats, dogs and robots generating designs. Inspiration comes from fashion, film and science. Each item they design is also truly magical, because they work with an eye to irony and they relish diagonals.
Front’s work is represented at MoMA, Victoria & Albert Museum, M+, Nationalmuseum, Vitra Design Museum and Centre Pompidou.
