Shade by Front



Milan 08: Swedish designers Front exhibited their Shade project at Spazio Rossana Orlandi during the Milan furniture fair, which ends today.


The installation consisted of a room set containing white objects and furniture, which were decorated with black marks and hatching to enhance the sense of depth and shadow.


Front claim the objects are "like materialized illustrations".

    This is not design. It is an installation. The horse lamp as well as the pig table was cool. however when it comes to usable design I am still curious when/if it will really come from Front Design.

    looks like a poor take on Joohee Lee’s Sketch chair, which was exhibited 2 years ago at milan.
