The Design Miami/ Basel Designer of the Future Award recognizes an emerging designer or collective that has been practicing for less than 15 years. This year, the Selection Committee chose Swedish design collective Front. Front is Sofia Lagerkvist, Charlotte von der Lancken, Anna Lindgren and Katja Sävström. At Design Miami/ Basel they present an on-site installation that showcases their portfolio. In this video, Anna Lindgren shows us some works, especially the “Magic Collection” (in the Magic collection, design pieces are made to make other objects disappear, a lamp that levitates, a chair balances on one leg and a chest of drawers separates and floats away) and tells us more about Front. Design Miami/ Basel, June 12, 2007.
