Resting Bear Pouf
Vitra Design, Germany

Add a touch of whismy and style to your home with the Front® Resting Bear Pouf by Vitra™. Vitra's Resting Bear-shaped pouf can be used as an ottoman, seat or soothing accent piece. Resting Bear is fashioned from a knitted neoprene fabric and molded foam with a wooden base. The Resting Bear is part of Vitra's new Resting Animals series devoted to the systematic observation of sleeping or hibernating animals.

Designed by the Swedish Front for Vitra, the Resting Animals are characterized by a sleepy and smiling feeling and well-thought design. The collection resulted from a research project where Front asked people to name some of their most emotionally enriching and meaningful objects – majority of answers were some kind of animal figures. In their previous works Front has observed sleep and hibernation of animals. The Resting Animals combine these two themes into visually pleasing objects that surround themselves with experiences of joy, tranquillity and companionship.

Front is a Swedish design duo formed by Sofia Lagerkvist and Anna Lindgren. Their work has a strong emphasis on common discussions and explorations, and the final result often has a story to communicate. Front is also known their for surprising and experimental working methods, such as creating design with animals or machines. Front has collaborated with many well-known brands including Vitra, Tom Dixon, Kartell, Stelton and Swedese, and their work has been included in the collections of MoMA, Victoria & Albert Museum and Centre Pompidou.
