Salone Del Mobile : Moroso

A hot african wind was blowing though the furniture fair this year and it was eminating from Moroso's showroom in Via Pontaccio ! This was the most vibrant stimulating heart warming show in town.


Moroso classics were covered in african wax prints, last years coloured woven string chairs were expanded upon, Fabulous photos were displayed as were exciting artworks by African artists.



The whole showroom throbbed with colour and energy, Patricia Moroso explained "Our intention is to showcase the creativity of a few of the great artists and exponents of contemporary African culture...
...because looking at Africa through the eyes of contemporary art, photography, architecture and design is perhaps the most appropriate way of approaching this vast, powerful continent, so creatively rich and diverse that today it is still one of western modernity's greatest sources of inspiration". We can't agree more.
