Design Front, 2018
Molded foam, synthetic pellets, knit, wooden board
Made by Vitra

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.

This fascination inspired their design of a group of slumbering creatures - Resting Animals - whose poses exude a serene tranquillity. The largest is a knit-covered bear that can be used for a variety of functions, such as a stool, ottoman or backrest. The smaller designs are decorative ceramic figures depicting a cat and two birds in different sizes. 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.
