or Call to Order

Arda, designed by the Swedish design studio Front for Kvadrat, is a knitted uphol­stery textile that recre­ates complex natural forms, struc­tures, surfaces, and colors found deep in the wild. The tapes­try-like expres­sion of Arda changes to reflect the surround­ing envi­ron­ment. Arda is primar­ily constructed from a natural woolen yard – a renew­able source – using an inno­v­a­tive manu­fac­tur­ing process. This process reduces water consump­tion by 80 to 90%. Arda is suit­able for uphol­stery and verti­cal appli­ca­tions. Conse­quently, it is ideal for commer­cial as well as residential usage.




Front is a Swedish design group led by Sofia Lagerkvist and Anna Lindgren. Their work is based on common discussions, explorations, and experiments, and they collaborate in all projects, from initial ideas to the final product. Their work often communicates a story to the observer about the design process, material, or conventions within the design field. They have made a constantly changing interior, created objects with explosions, robotic furniture, and a range of furniture inspired by their fascination with magic.

Work from Front forms part of the permanent collections of many prestigious institutions such as the MoMA in New York, the Victoria & Albert Museum in London, the London Design Museum, Vitra Design Museum Germany, M+ Hong Kong, Rhösska Museet, and the National Museum in Stockholm. They also collaborate with leading furniture brands, including Vitra, IKEA, Moroso, Moooi, and Kartell.
