Maroso

Moroso Bouquet armchair

by Tokujin Yoshioka, 2008

Simple forms of poetry and beauty.

From a slim chrome, metal stem blooms a bouquet of petals, formed from squares of fabric that is hand folded and sewn one by one by skilled hands and infinite patience. A tribute to the almost spiritual beauty which lies in the simplicity of a repeated gesture, unveiling the line between vision and the actual image.

Description

The coat of petals wraps the egg-shaped shell until all the interior is covered. Allegory of dreams, sophisticated poetic transformation celebrated in an object of industrial design. The chair makes everyone who sits in it happy, as the gift of a bouquet of flowers.

Injected flame-retardant foam over an internal steel frame. The swivel base is steel with powder coat finish; on neoprene rubber glides. Bouquet covers are removable.
