Victoria and Albert sofa designed by Ron Arad for Moroso.
Designed for Moroso by Ron Arad this lovely curved sofa with flowing lines is a beautiful piece of design.
Originally a ‘doughnut’ which provided inspiration for a sculpture: squashed, and reworked, using irony to go beyond the usual approach to industrial design.
Then the piece itself: the padding and sewn-to-measure upholstery over an inner fibreglass frame reveal the interaction between the technical and expressive merits of the design. Its never-ending lines are sensitive but strong, perfect consonance between surface and form, body and skin. The fabric reaches out into the space around it magnifying and reinforcing the materiality of the piece yet without interrupting or overpowering its fluidity.
Stress-resistant polyurethane foam in varied densities on fiberglass-reinforced resin and steel frame. Legs are tubular varnished steel on chromed finished steel adjustable glides. Covers is removable

The Design / Brand
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 Vice President, 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.
