Tropicalia Cacoon

PATRICIA URQUIOLA | 2008

The tubular steel frame of Antibodi becomes the starting point which the designer uses for a creative makeover. The frame is disguised and transformed, the seats assume different personalities according to the material used. The wrapping of thread works like pencil lines, creating a surface which is both graphic and structural, both part of its construction and a form of identity: playful when two or three colours are used, sophisticated in a single colour, elegant in leather. Frame in red varnished steel, and multicoloured engineeringpolymer strand weave. The cushion of the armchair is in polyester fibre. 5 cushions in polyester fibre.

Moroso has been working in close collaboration with some of the world’s most talented designers to produce luxury sofas and seating since 1952.

Today the company is headed by the second generation of the Moroso family- Roberto, the CEO, and Patrizia, the Art Director,- and is an example of how a small Italian artisan-owner company has evolved since it was run until the nineties by Agostino Moroso. The company has always been open to new ideas, from its origins in post-war Italy where there was a culture of “doing things and doing them well”, Moroso has been farsighted, daring and certain of the advantage of combining craftsmanship and tailoring with industrial processing techniques to create unique products and by drawing on the worlds of industrial design, contemporary art and fashion.

Along with its product catalogue, the culmination of thirty years work in design and expression, Moroso offers customers its design and production expertise to create customized projects for the contract and luxury residential sectors. Our ability to offer unique products is thanks to the combined talents of our 70 master artisans, our network of trusted suppliers, the use of high quality materials and a true attention to detail.
