Resting Animals are the result of a research project by Front focussing on the close connection between humans and figurative objects. The design duo asked randomly selected people to identify the most emotionally enriching and meaningful objects in their lives. The majority of answers turned out to be animal figures that were perceived to have personalities, specific attributes or a shared history. Previous works by Front have been devoted to the systematic observation of how various animals sleep or hibernate.
Resting Animals not only bring a touch of nature into the home; their peaceful presence goes beyond the visual to communicate a sense of contentment and companionship.

Sofia Lagerkvist and Anna Lindgren – both from Sweden – founded the Stockholm-based design studio Front in 2004. Known for their constant questioning of the design process, they have developed objects for major design brands across the world.
