Gemma Sofa

Lobbies/Reception
Daniel Libeskind | 2016

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.

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.
