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.

Shadowy Chair by Tord Boontje


I took this photo of the Shadowy Chair during my recent visit to La Suite and didn’t know what it was until I searched a bit for Tord Boontje and found out at the excellent site of Bonluxat that this is a outdoor chair designed by Tord Boontje for Moroso. When I took the photo I thought: “This must be scorpion inspired!” What is your idea?

Moroso brought a range of major new products to the Milan Furniture Show this year. The basic concepts for this year’s show are lightness and playing with images – things are not always exactly what they seem – and a study of forms, colours and fabrics: super sophisticated, high-tech and new.

Tropicalia collection by Patricia Urquoila for Moroso

Tropicalia by Patricia Urquoila for Moroso

The 2008 show will witness the presentation of the Tropicalia collection, the design of which starts off from the same structure as the Antibodi collection, though using weaving techniques.
The collection comprises a chaise longue, couch, armchair, chair, outdoor bed, swinging nest….
The design envisages a tubular steel structure with complex geometrical shapes, embellished with a clever weft of threads that alternate solids and voids to a specific pattern, paying meticulous attention to detail.
Each object in the collection takes on a different personality depending on the material and the colour used. It can be made playful and cheerful by using thermoplastic polymer threads free of heavy metal and recyclable, sophisticated and precious by using leather, simple and elegant by using HT polyester double plaited cords in either one or two colours.
The coloured versions are made using three threads combining different colors and creating interesting colour mixes.

Base in stainless or varnished steel, seat made of string weave available in 3 different versions:

– polymer
– polyester HT
– leather
