Gearing up for the Salone del Mobile: Moroso
DZINE is looking forward to the introduction of the Moon Chair designed by Tokujin Yoshioka.
Moroso expects perfectionism and simplicity from this talented designer, and he gives Moon an implicit elegance of sparseness. The underlying base of last year’s Memory chair is a basic shell that is the starting point for Moon. The originality of Moon lies in its relationship with light which it absorbs and diffuses. It will be presented in roto-molded polyethylene with and without lacquer and as fabric upholstered polyurethane.
"MOON is the chair inspired by the beauty of the light and shadow inherent in the moon. The moonlight is ephemeral light which is born and fades away momentarily. It is the finest expression of the universe," says Tokujin Yoshioka.
