The Skate collection of armchair and settee is comfortable and versatile, suitable for use in public or private spaces such as home and office settings. The collection is like a silhouette of a person sitting, conveying a gesture as if to hold it in slow motion. The painted steel cantilevered base supports and stabilizes the pieces, emphasizing lightness and transparency with a strong element of stability.

Alfredo Haberli

Alfredo Haberli (b. 1964) of Buenos Aires is now based in Zurich. He earned a degree in Industrial Design at the Higher School of Design in 1991. He then co-opened a studio with Cristophe Marchand until 1999, when he opened his own studio, Haberli Design Development. His clients include: Alias, Camper, Iittala, Kvadrat, Luceplan, Moroso, Ruckstuhl, Schiffini and Volvo. Haberli primarily designs everyday home furnishings. His striped, colorful Origo series from 1999 quickly became a popular seller and remains highly recognizable. With the series and in all of his works, Haberli manages to combine tradition with innovation, joy, and energy. He believes “observation is the best form of thinking” and the results yield everyday objects that are practical and easily paired with one another.
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.
