Featured at this year’s ICFF, Moroso presented a new collection of outdoor furniture, with each piece designed by a different designer that Moroso has worked with in their past. They then went on to shoot the furniture in a creative style by installing the pieces in various nature settings. The result is a conceptual slew of scenes that show off the furniture while at the same time get us psyched for the summer nights where you lounge outside until the sun goes down, and you let the hours just slip away. Below are our faves from the collection, and if this post doesn’t make you want to go kick it back among the trees and grass (or your loft patio, possibly), we don’t know what will. When are you going to start the summer off right and with which Moroso piece-of-choice?
“O Nest” sits quietly and patiently for someone to come take a seat.
“Wavy” by Ron Arad is made from thermoformed polyethylene plastic and comes in clear, red, or gray colors. Just don’t lose this piece in rushing water!
“Osorom” is a quiet statement piece that doesn’t beg for attention but could definitely stand all on its own.
“Shadowy Chaise Lounge” by Tord Boontje sports a “robust form” and evokes the 1920s beach furniture from Northern Europe and the North Sea. It’s also inspired by Senegalese woven furniture that uses traditional techniques with nylon yarn left over from the fishing industry.
Marcel Wanders’ “Shitake” stool is inspired by the tale of Snow White and showcases an embossed lacey relief pattern. Molded of plastic, the stools that stem from the scene of Snow White’s death when the seven dwarfs sit on stools covered by lace embroidered by Snow White herself, they come in black, white, or red.
“Supernatural” is a stackable addition to Ross Lovegrove’s armless chair of the same name. It’s a design that is light in weight yet durable at the same time.
A series of low ceramic stools in solid color glazes (including an eye-catching gold and silver), “Fool on the Hill” is designed by Luca Nichetto, and really could move from outdoors to in, if weather patterns change.
