Lancken, Charlotte, von der
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.
