Italian design house Moroso is truly a force to be reckoned with. Known for its daring spirit, the brand has been making waves at Heal’s since their introduction as part of our Designer Collections in 2016.
A family run business since 1952, the origins of the brand lie in postwar Italy during a period of great national optimism for design and its potential to improve people’s lives both economically and on an everyday basis. Now run by the second wave of the Moroso family, headed by CEO Roberto and Creative Director Patrizia, this spirit lives on today with the brand priding itself on working with established and emerging designers including a number of names that will be familiar to Heal’s fans such as Patricia Urquiola, Tom Dixon, Ron Arad and Antonio Citterio. Who better to explain the ethos of the iconic brand than Patrizia Moroso herself:
“The story of Moroso is the story of our relationships with designers, people who, with intelligence and with the passion which always inspires artists in the face of beauty, are trying to change the world for the better. I ask them not to imagine a single object, but to imagine a new world and project it into the future.”
Moroso designs are borne out of a desire to do something never done before. Designs must offer something new – not merely be remakes of that which already exists. This makes for a collection that doesn’t have a traditional look and feel, but instead a selection of unique, carefully crafted pieces that push the boundaries of design.
One of Moroso’s most recignisable designs, the Supernatural Chair, was designed by Ross Lovegrove. It features holes that weren’t added for decoration, but to make the chair as light as possible.
Moroso is part of Heal’s Designer Collections, our edit of the world’s finest international designer furniture and lifestyle brands.
