Armada – Small Armchair

Breakout / Collaborative/Lobbies/Reception
Nipa Doshi & Jonathan Levien | 2016

’Armada’ is a sculptural seating collection that was designed for open work and lounge spaces. The blown forms of the armchairs billow out from the seat like wind filled sails, creating a sense of lightness and movement, while providing degrees of privacy and seclusion. The form language explores the use of surface and volume through a combination of thin upholstered sides with voluminous soft cushions on the inside providing comfort for working on the move. The collection consists of a high and low back armchair and a fully upholstered dining chair on a pedestal.
Structure in injected flame-retardant plyuretane foam with internal frame in steel. Highback and Lowback have powder coated steel base. The cover is not removable.

Moroso has been working in close collaboration with some of the world’s most talented designers to produce luxury sofas and seating since 1952.

Today the company is headed by the second generation of the Moroso family- Roberto, the CEO, and Patrizia, the Art Director,- and is an example of how a small Italian artisan-owner company has evolved since it was run until the nineties by Agostino Moroso. The company has always been open to new ideas, from its origins in post-war Italy where there was a culture of ‘doing things and doing them well’, Moroso has been farsighted, daring and certain of the advantage of combining craftsmanship and tailoring with industrial processing techniques to create unique products and by drawing on the worlds of industrial design, contemporary art and fashion.

Along with its product catalogue, the culmination of thirty years work in design and expression, Moroso offers customers its design and production expertise to create customized projects for the contract and luxury residential sectors. Our ability to offer unique products is thanks to the combined talents of our 70 master artisans, our network of trusted suppliers, the use of high quality materials and a true attention to detail.

Nipa Doshi was born in 1971 into a Gujarati family of Mumbai.

She graduated from the Royal College of Art, London, in 1997 but she soon returned to India to work with local craftspeople. After a short stay she went back to London where she met Jonathan Levien, a Scot who had recently finished his master’s in furniture design at the Royal College. The synergy between Nipa and Jonathan clicked immediately; in fact they set up Doshi Levien in 2000 and got married. The combination of the two cultures and creativities generated a very special, innovative design concept. Nipa’s is heavily influenced by the visual culture and materials of India, Jonathan’s is rooted in industrial design. Together, their work celebrates cultural hybridism and explores a combination of technology, narration and industrial and craft design.
