Have no fear, the mac-daddy of them all - Moroso will be at Super Brands London! Moroso will be showing their new Moon chair designed by Tokujin Yoshioka, in new special finishes and colours.
Moon will be presented in its armchair version: lacquered or non-lacquered rotomoulded polyethlene or fabric-upholstered polyurethane; and the chair version, with steel feet, is available in a lacquered flexible polyurethane version or with fabric upholstery.
Designed by Tokujin Yoshioka, the chair presents Japanese perfectionism and aesthetic simplicity in a fine balance of ancient poetics and modern styling.
Moon has an implicit elegance. Its clean, flowing lines create a harmonic relationship with the surrounding space; but its originality also lies in the visual movement it generates when hit by light.
"Moon is a chair inspired by the beauty of light and shadow typical of the Moon. Lunar light is ephemeral, it suddenly appears and disappears. It’s the most subtle expression of the universe”, says the designer, emphasising the inspiration he always feels when observing the processes of Nature.
Moon is also the forerunner of the Memory design presented in 2010 at the Milan Furniture Fair. In fact, Moon is the basic shell on which covers are placed to create the shape of Memory through a tactile, participatory process that made the chair such a success.
