Summer is already here. All we want is to spend our time on the balcony, courtyard, garden or near pool enjoying the sun. Modern outdoor furniture brings comfort and function to your outside spaces, to be cozy during the warm weather months. As big fans of Moroso, we will show you some of their new selection of garden furniture for this summer. Designers who work with Moroso are creative and innovative and therefore their ideas will pleasantly surprise you.
The Triclinium was a celebratory piece of furniture. This was where the ancient Romans entertained their guests, eat and drank, reclined and debated. It was a place for politics and pleasure. Front‘s new Triclinium sofa celebrates the different ways we use a couch in our daily lives. The sofa has become the central place of the home. We read, take naps, work, specialize, cuddle, watch TV, eat.
The Triclinium sofa is a transformable landscape of upholstery and cushions that creates a place for you and your friends and family to live in. The attached side table is perfect for snacks, dinner or your laptop. When your friends come to stay it can also be used as a sofa bed. The material in the woven ropes makes it possible to use it as a daybed outdoors too. A rug, made in the same rope technique, extends the seating area.
Imba’s origin comes from the playful combination of two flowing, intertwined loops. The geometry of the inner loop uses a closed woven pattern that provides comfort for the seat and backrest. The external loop, gently wrapped around the seat, creates a space frame for a semi-open weaving that offers intimate space, yet open at the same time. Designed by by Federica Capitani and made in Dakar, Africa, Imba is an attempted to translate the warm quality of hand crafted, unique artifacts into a collection that invites you for a relaxing moment and a casual conversation with friends.
Designed by Marc Thorpe Husk is inspired by the outer shell of corn. The fields of corn punctuate the landscape of northern Italy, in particular around the city of Udine. Corn is used as a resource globally across all borders and takes many forms. For Thorpe, this was an opportunity to translate the architecture of the husk from an ear of corn to produce a globally recognizable and accepted object for daily use. The design of Husk for the home collection of Moroso lent itself to the international sensibility of the outdoor collection M’Afrique, manufactured in Dakar, Senegal.
“The idea for the Senegal – O chair came from a dreamcatcher that my daughter Evie had made for my birthday. I liked the pattern and that it could be made with such simple means. It reminded me of the possibilities we have in Senegal: to weave by hand on a simple frame. I imagined the circle becoming a very large backrest, which would surround you like a halo when you sit against it” – says designer Tord Boontje.
