Design Tord Boontje, 2009
Varnished steel, polyethylene strands
Made by Moroso

The Shadowy chair, deckchair and Sunny Lounger sunbed have shapes that evoke the beach furniture found at the North Sea in Northern Europe in the twenties. These designs have now become contemporary by the use of digitally drawn color patterns and woven by expert African craftsmen using colored plastic threads.

Tord Boontje was born in Enschede, Netherlands. He first studied industrial design at the Design Academy in Eindhoven, and followed with a masters from the Royal College of Art in London. Studio Tord Boontje was founded in 1996. The Studio's work draws from a belief that modernism does not mean minimalism, that contemporary does not forsake tradition, and that technology does not abandon people and senses.

The colored patterns are obtained by the weaving of four colors with structure in steel with a robust shape. Shadowy has curious ruffles in the end parts, in the armrests and backrest that turn into a parasol cover.

The items in the collection are craft pieces: each product is a unique piece and differences in the colors and in the weaves are not to be considered defects. Colors of the strands may slightly fade due to extended sun exposure.

Agostino Moroso, with his wife, Diana, founded the Moroso company in 1952 with an artisanal approach to making sofas, armchairs and furnishing accessories. Their iconic designs have propelled them within the upholstered furniture market, with help from a long list of well known designers: Ron Arad, Patricia Urquiola, Ross Lovegrove, Konstantin Grcic, Alfredo Häberli, Toshiyuki Kita, Marcel Wanders and others. Each piece maintains a noticeable Moroso style while representing other cultures as well. Its international outlook has landed Moroso into the MoMA in New York, Le Palais de Tokyo, the Grand Palais in Paris.
