Diesel Living with Moroso
This year, Moroso will be participating at WantedDesign, Manhattan in the Diesel Living booth. Moroso’s ongoing Diesel collection, first launched in 2009, brings to home furnishings what the renowned brand, Diesel, has brought to fashion: an informal, youthful lifestyle, inspired by edgy music, a creative spirit, and a need to express one’s individuality. Diesel has teamed up with the cutting edge Italian furniture maker, Moroso, to produce sofas, tables, chairs, beds and accessories.
Says Patrizia Moroso, creative director of her namesake brand, “We worked with the Diesel creative team to develop an interesting and alternative collection idea which was to represent two different yet coexisting aspects of certain contemporary trends: one which is darker in tone, inspired by the underground world and with a more aggressive and enigmatic aesthetic, and the other lighter, inspired by nature and a visual radiance, with soft and welcoming shapes.” Among the Moroso pieces to be shown at the Diesel Living stand at WantedDesign are Longwave, a wingback chair, My Moon My Mirror table and mirror, Perf cabinetry and Rock chair.
Moroso, founded over 60 years ago in Udine, Italy, is a major player on the Italian and international design scene. Today, under the creative direction of Patrizia Moroso, the company maintains an investigative approach to design, collaborating with designers and artists from around the world. Moroso products celebrate the balance between technological innovation and old world craftsmanship. Moroso USA is headquartered at 146 Greene Street in New York City.
