Design Tord Boontje, 2008
Double varnished steel
Made in Italy by Moroso

Rain chair and Rain table constitute an alternative way of working both metal and sheet metal. They have a tubular steel structure and plates of perforated sheet metal that are laser decorated with delicate images and natural scenes characteristic of Tord Boontje's work. The shapes are a contemporary reworking of the classic wrought iron garden furniture, embellished and made lighter by the laser flower working of the surfaces.

Tord Boontje was born in Enschede, Netherlands. He first studied industrial design at the Design Academy in Eindhoven, and followed with a masters from the Royal College of Art in London. Studio Tord Boontje was founded in 1996. The Studio's work draws from a belief that modernism does not mean minimalism, that contemporary does not forsake tradition, and that technology does not abandon people and senses.

Rain Collection is a lightweight, delicate and refined set of furniture that looks to the future. The products have been devised for outdoors but can also be used indoors, also being a good proposal for contract furnishing. Both the chair and table are decorated.

Agostino Moroso, with his wife, Diana, founded the Moroso company in 1952 with an artisanal approach to making sofas, armchairs and furnishing accessories. Their iconic designs have propelled them within the upholstered furniture market, with help from a long list of well known designers: Ron Arad, Patricia Urquiola, Ross Lovegrove, Konstantin Grcic, Alfredo Häberli, Toshiyuki Kita, Marcel Wanders and others. Each piece maintains a noticeable Moroso style while representing other cultures as well. Its international outlook has landed Moroso into the MoMA in New York, Le Palais de Tokyo, the Grand Palais in Paris.
