Matrizia by Ron Arad

Matrizia by Ron Arad

One of the newer designs by Ron for Moroso (2015).

Matrizia is instead a sofa-sculpture, an upholstered furniture item which acts as the ideal midway point between design skill and craft talent.

The idea came about by accident, after seeing mattresses dumped in the street when walking in town, a sight which captured the boundless imagination of Ron Arad and triggered an imaginary operation of salvage and decontextualisation.

Matrizia was thus born by modelling and recovering a mattress so as to create a comfortable and innovative seat, while the name is a witty combination of the word “mattress” with “Patrizia”

“Time for something colorful” I thought and came across this Charpoy Bench by Doshi Levien on the Moroso site.

Faux Wooden Sofa by Design Front

Faux Wooden Sofa

When I posted Wooden Bench in front of The Nordic Light Hotel in 2008 I wasn’t aware that in fact it was a Faux Wooden Sofa, until I read this blogpost of D E C E P T O L O G Y:….It was a sofa designed by Design Front for Moroso. However it was not made of wood at all. Its upholstery was a faux wooden print. Cleverly decepted!

The same deception as with the faux marble chair by Maurizio Galante.

About Design Front

As the 3 ladies of Design Front, Sofia Lagerkvist, Charlotte von der Lancken and Anna Lindgren based in Stockholm, are so kind as to have their group photo available at their website I feature “Das Dreimäderlhaus” with pleasure – also in our category Chairchez La Femme in the sense of “Look which ladies design the chair”;-)

Japanese designer Tokujin Yoshioka launched a crumpled aluminium chair for Italian brand Moroso in Milan last year.

The Memory Chair is covered in a layer containing recycled aluminium, which retains its form.

The baobab-inspired Binta chair by Philippe Bestenheider for Moroso has trunk-like feet that anchor the foam body to the ground. The patchwork of fabrics is evocative of the textiles worn by African women.
