moon small armchair

Design Tokujin Yoshioka, 2011
Rotational molded recyclable polyethylene
Made in Italy by Moroso

Voids and spaces move in perfect formal harmony. Shifting, flowing lines give the Moon chair a profile which seems evanescent rather than solid, absorbing and diffusing a faint, refined glow. Size, on Moon, is an illusion. From the side, the curves of the seat merge with the cylindrical form of the base to bring to mind a flower in bloom, a concession to the organic in this rigorously geometric order. From the front, the glow from the seat as the light appears and disappears is enchantingly magical. What makes the form so original is the reverberations that emanate from the different planes. It is a new form of three-dimensionality which enhances the stylish lines and the moon-like quality of the piece which originates in the interaction of the solid with the evanescent.

Tokujin Yoshioka, is a great "couturier" with a meticulous eye for detail, he is a designer whose delicate, poetic, elegant designs help us to dream. He likes to astonish us by producing surprising effects from simple, almost banal objects which he interprets and uses in an extraordinary way by means of his ability to see beyond and to reinterpret the world through the characteristic poetry and harmony of Japanese culture.

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.
