Moroso

Moroso has been working in close collaboration with some of the world’s most talented designers to produce luxury sofas and seating since 1952. Today the company is headed by the second generation of the Moroso family- Roberto, the CEO, and Patrizia, the Art Director,- and is an example of how a small Italian artisan-owner company has evolved since it was run until the nineties by Agostino Moroso. The company has always been open to new ideas, from its origins in post-war Italy where there was a culture of ‘doing things and doing them well’, Moroso has been farsighted, daring and certain of the advantage of combining craftsmanship and tailoring with industrial processing techniques to create unique products and by drawing on the worlds of industrial design, contemporary art and fashion.

Dew stool

A round ottoman as a drop of water, where surface tension lines are transformed into a network of strips of leather. As for some optical works of the ’50s, Nendo studied perceptual processes underlying the movement, translating them into an arrangement of lines and geometric shapes arranged in a precise mathematical approach. The optical effect, emphasized by reports of extension and the use of black and white in its simplicity allows multiple reading of the object, at the same time structural and surface.
