Coat for Moroso (2012)

Practical armchairs without supports that rest directly and firmly on the floor, steady despite the fact that they are lightweight and easy to move. The idea comes from the hosiery industry, from the non-slip soles used for children´s socks. Prints that are functional and decorative at the same time. the pattern, in transparent silicone, does not add colour but instead tones down the fabric and merges with it like the effect of water. The upholstery, a soft and supple removable cover, wraps around and dresses the seat, a simple trick which maintains the design coherence intact.
