"This new stackable chair has a structure that is the result of an evolution, more than of a design process." -Ross Lovegrove

Supernatural is an important innovation in technology while introducing a design product that offers excellent value for the money. Lovegrove suggests this chair "represents a new vision of form, generated by digital data, resulting in a chair to be used every day, slender, lively and healthy. The liquid, organic nature of its form combines the beauty of the human anatomy with the most advanced process of industrialization of 21st-century polymers".

The Supernatural is proposed in two versions, with solid or perforated back. "The perforations also have the purpose of adding a multi-sensory effect to the chairs when light passes over them to create shadows that enrich the space and thus offer the architectural surfaces unexpected levels of beauty".

Born in Galles, Ross Lovegrove graduated at Manchester polytechnic in Industrial Design and received a master in Design at the Royal College of Art. He worked as a designer for Frog Design on projects such as Walkman for Sony and Computers for Apple. He later moved to Paris as a consultant for Knoll International and invited to join the Atelier de Nimes together with Jean Nouvel and Philippe Starck. Lovegrove is winner of numerous international awards, his work has been extensively published and exhibited internationally.

The Supernatural chair is colorful, stackable and, thanks to the special material used, is fade resistant and suited for the outdoors. Offered in a variety of colors and sold in sets of 4 chairs of the same color.

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 Haberli, 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.

Perfect for live edge dining table
DB, more than a month ago.
We have a fabulous live edge Claro Walnut dining table with a modern banquette on two sides. We were looking for the perfect chairs for the remaining sides, and these definitely fit the bill. The look is playful and delightful, they are very comfortable, and they seem very sturdy so far while also being quite lightweight. We couldn’t be happier with the purchase.

Love these chairs
Pmbord, more than a month ago.
I needed chairs for a mid century modern home that I was doing up, and these are perfect—long lead time but perfect. A tough higher than other chairs, but that’s welcome. Bought ours in white with green cushions. The cushions are very thin, but still fine for the family work station table. Hive does a nice job and always come through for me with issues, if any.
