New furniture and lighting
by Front


Milan 2013: Swedish collective Front will launch six new products in Milan next week, including leather stools shaped like squidgy animals and a plywood table with burnt-on doodles (+ slideshow).

Front will also present a lamp shaped like a mobile, a see-through ash cabinet, a globe-shaped lamp with a frosted exterior and a set of three low tables.

The products will be exhibited at the the Salone Internazionale del Mobile and Spazio Rossana Orlandi from 9 to 14 April. Find the venues on Dezeen's Milan 2013 map.

Last year in Milan the Stockholm company exhibited a lamp that blows a bubble every few seconds to form a transparent shade and a chair with a flexible back.

    Pig stools and yellow lamps are ok, plywood table is awful.

  • Ceal

    Same opinion! Front is over-estimated.

  • Dan Leno

    The stool looks disgusting.

    • Josh V

      Hahaha, pun intended?

  • Peter Scorer

    Love the “anomalous” pigs! I might try a DIY of this.

  • James Mccann

    It's amazing to see something with a completely new expression! No wonder it's unsettling to some people. Front are constantly surprising and the stool is something really intense and interesting.

    It’s like a beheaded stuffed pet – love it.

  • MiniMal

    Does my bum look big in this?

    The leather squidgy animal stools do bear a striking resemblance to Fredrik Fӓrg’s Succession series shown in Stockholm (and featured on Dezeen) two years ago:

  • Concerned Citizen

    Someone will end up putting a head and arse on the pigs.

  • Kim

    Love the yellow lamp! Fantastic! So many great projects.

  • Angelo

    Pig stools are pure genius. Love love love.

  • george

    Granted, maybe I need help, but those leather stools look like a pig with its head stuck up its arse.
