Modernism does not always equate to minimalism. A love for contemporary elements does not always necessitate an abandonment of traditions. The Madame Dakar Sofa for Moroso is a vivid reminder that traditional design concepts can beautifully blend with modern aspirations. Interestingly, the artists claim that a gorgeous, buxom Dakaroise was their muse in creating this gigantic curvilinear armchair. Designers Ayse Birsel & Bibi Seck drew their inspiration from culture and nature, infusing their creative stroke with whiffs and traces of contemporary artistry.
Modulated pieces of art have their origin in the Renaissance. In keeping up with the spirit of alterable art, contemporary artists have sought to bring their work to life by integrating kinetic craftsmanship into their creations. Design mastermind Ron Arad experimented with the possibilities of physical dynamism when designing the Misfits Sofa System for Moroso. He infused perpetual movement into this set of modular seats. In what seems like a drift away from the typical static sofa set structure, Arad’s creation is designed to evoke a gracefully continuous motion.
