A seating collection launched by Moroso during the Milan Furniture Fair, which draws inspiration from a miniature painting from “The Garden of Life” by Naveen Patnaik. The book is beautifully illustrated and a practical guide for the use of plants in a range of applications – sacred, medicinal, culinary, cosmetic and aromatic. The found illustration provided style cues and ideas to the duo which eventually led to the new series of seating.

Mesa evolved from an architectural experiment which was to do with creating connections. Elastika was an installation created in the Moore Building in 2005 for the Miami Design Fair. The brief had been a sculptural structure to revivify the 1921 building’s atrium. Zaha Hadid’s proposal was an organic set of tentacles which linked spaces and floors across the atrium, defying changing levels and criss-crossing each other in mid-air. The effect was like a huge, sticky chewing gum pulled out of shape across the interior. This concept is now illustrated as a Vitra Edition table.

Ikon (we like the name) is a range of architectural lighting luminaires characterized by a sober and well-balanced design suitable for every type of situation. The rotation of the lighting module and by the many solutions available – suspended, wall-mounted, floor and projector make it a very flexible lighting solution.

The strict architectural structure of Teepee gives little hint of the enormous design effort that went into its development.

Lantern has a sober but appealing shape. The compact, slightly bulbous lamp is somewhat reminiscent of a Chinese lantern. This association is underscored by its pleasantly warm, soft light.
