The members of Front, Sofia Lagerkvist, Charlotte von der Lancken, Anna Lindgren and Katja Sävström say

We in Front have been inspired by figuratively shaped chocolate wrapped in metal foil. The printed wrapping makes the chocolate into a decorative object and a toy. As a kid you were torn between wanting to tear off the wrapping to eat the chocolate or keeping it. We have made a series of vases in one: a Changing Vase. A chocolate brown glass vase is covered in five layers of foil. When you tear one layer off a new one will appear and change the expression of the vase.

    The changing vase is fantastic! The kind of thing you have to touch when you see it.
