Charlotte von der Lancken (*1978) studied industrial design at the Konstfack University College of Arts, Crafts and Design in Stockholm. In 2004, she and three partners founded what is probably one of the most famous avant-garde design studios in the world: Front Design. Many of her designs, including designs for brands such as Kartell, Hansgrohe, Stelton, Thonet and Moooi, are already regarded as classics.
Charlotte von der Lancken likes to experiment with new techniques and materials, designs installations for shops, and gives presentations at universities. Having been awarded several design prizes, she has now formed her own label – CVDL. The Swedish designer lives and works freelance in Stockholm.
Delicate morning dew drops, clinging like tiny jewels to blades of grass and petals, were the inspiration for Charlotte von der Lancken’s design Dagg. She has captured the beauty of this moment in a simple vase. Glistening crystal droplets dangle from the 27-cm-high conical vase, as if ready to roll off it at any moment. The size and clarity of the droplets almost give them the appearance of tiny mirrors and turn them into very special gems.
