The new interior design products 2017 by Moroso
Meeting the needs that come from a new concept of hospitality that considers hotels no more as cold monuments, but as cozy and comfortable places to make guests feel “at home”: this is the aim of the new interior proposals signed Moroso that will be presented in preview at the Salone del Mobile.Milano exhibition.
Moreover, the famous brand of furnishing goes on with the research on the fabric: on the one hand by collaborating with companies of the sector, on the other hand with an experimental use of prints.
Some of the new entries are part of this concept, like Josephine by Gordon Guillaumier in the sofa or vis-à-vis versions designed for the contract but also useful for a home version. Born from the desire to break free from the typical angular and cubic lines of modern sofas, Josephine stands out for its rounded shapes that give life to arms, backrest and fine proportions further lightened by a seat visibly raised from the ground.
A balanced product with an intentional allusion to Joséphine Baker, provocative icon of the '30s, known to be a quick-change artist. For this reason, the Maltese designer added to the project a “dressed” version with a fringe applied to the base, which turns the product into a hybrid, adaptable both for hotels and home environments.
The cooperation with the Anglo-Indian duo Nipa Doshi and Jonathan Levien goes on, proposing this year the sofa and the armchair Sumisura, inspired by tailored men’s suits. The slight padding is refined by the use of buttons that recall the capitonnè workmanship as well as creating a real decor.
Finally, the family of padded benches Meadow designed by Tord Boontje – made up of three different forms, all characterized by fluid and organic lines - evokes the small clearings in the woods.
The legs are the result of three overlapping spheres, made of wood or mat acrylic, while the curved profiles and the absence of the backrest give Meadow an informal character suitable to different contexts and uses.
