Technical Information

Within the framework of the "M'Afrique" project, Moroso proposed to some artists (designers, architects, photographers) to convey the strength and beauty of Africa in their works. Ethnic prints in bright colors for an absolutely trendy “exo chic” effect! With the Shadowy collection, Tord Boontje offers us a poetic and eccentric interpretation of Africa. A meeting point of multiple inspirations, the Shadowy chair is a true masterpiece. The Dutch designer manages to mix baroque and art nouveau ethnic style, with humor and panache! The extremely original curved shapes evoke the beach chairs of the 20s. Shadowy's extraordinarily high back and seat finish in curved lines that give the appearance of a throne. The ethnic and colorful prints are first drawn and then digitized by the designer Tord Boontje. Then they are handmade by African master craftsmen, in a Senegalese atelier created by Moroso. The countless multicolored plastic threads are meticulously intertwined to give life to the geometric patterns. The wires are stretched on a painted steel structure. The weaving technique used is traditionally used in Africa to make fishing nets. A remarkable craftsmanship that makes each Shadowy chair a unique piece. The Shadowy chair is available in five colors: Multired (orange, red, yellow, brown), Multigreen (green, blue), Supercolor (red, black, white), Black & White (black and white), Plain Green (green tint unit). The Shadowy collection includes a pouf, an armchair, a chair and a chaise longue. Indoor and outdoor - Handcrafted weaving made in a Senegalese workshop created by Moroso
