Gemma Collection by Daniel Libeskind for Moroso
Updated: Jan 8, 2020
The Gemma collection was developed around the idea of contrast and experience derived from the perception of a shape. The sharp asymmetry of its three-dimensional geometry contrasts the softness of the upholstery. The multi-faceted profile is reminiscent of both a precious gemstone and of the compositions typical of fifteenth century Italian tapestries. The collection represents a synergy between the complex geometries of Libeskind and the well-known expertise of Moroso. Libeskind has drawn a tremendous amount of inspiration from natural geological forms including crystals, gems and natural rock formations. For the Moroso collection, the design is informed by the asymmetrical faceted design of gems to create both a sculpture piece for the home or office and connect to Libeskind’s large oeuvre.
Gemma is made from resin treated polystyrene, flame-retardant foam. Glides in polypropylene.
