The recipient of the 2023 Bruno Mathsson Prize is the Swedish design studio Front. The Bruno Mathsson Prize has been awarded annually since 1984 and is the largest design prize in the Nordic region, with a prize sum of 200,000 SEK. The award ceremony takes place at the art and design museum Vandalorum, located in the hometown of the designer and architect Bruno Mathsson, Värnamo.

Front was founded in 2004 and consists of Sofia Lagerkvist and Anna Lindgren, both educated at Konstfack and based in Stockholm. Front is represented, among other places, at MoMA in New York, V&A in London, Centre Pompidou in Paris, M+ in Hong Kong, Nationalmuseum in Stockholm, Vitra Design Museum in Weil am Rhein, and Röhsska Museet in Gothenburg.

Sofia Lagerkvist och Anna Lindgren har med studion Front etablerat en forskningsbaserad verktygslåda för innovativa design- och utvecklingsprojekt. De har med stor framgång skapat en internationell profil genom att generöst omfamna allt från naturens kreativitet till slumpens kraft som källa till sin design. De konstnärliga uttrycken växer ur digitalt och tekniskt komplicerade processer som underfundigt kombineras med hantverk.

Prisutdelningen sker den 3 juni 2023 på konst- och designmuseet Vandalorum i Värnamo i samband med vernissagen av en omfattande utställning med Front i Formladan
