A touch of new objectivity
by Fabian Peters | 5/10/2018
Quo vadis, furniture design? This year’s Salone del Mobile reveals a few ideas. An analysis in our glance back at the fair.
An exaggerated-stitch pattern, an expanded, intense aesthetic transforms a weave into a visible, dramatic sign. There is no difference between the whole and a detail, the weave itself enhances the articles it covers.
Two separate, overlapping elements which, at first sight, do not immediately reveal their abstract, structural connections. The wooden frame takes possession of the design, controlling it, emphasizing its intensity and engendering its shape.
The seat, on the other hand, presents an overall vision, highlighting its immediate relevance as comfortable, informal seating.
The material used for the weave, thanks to the property of resistance to weather conditions and the sun's rays, allows use outdoors. An innovative solution, a tubular knit in PVC with polyester core, combined with an internal net in polypropylene containing recycled polyethylene chips, made exclusively for Moroso by the Italian firm Plastitex.
