This eye-catching lounge chair is designed by Ron Arad for Moroso in Italy, circa 1991.
It has an eye-catching design, the use of shapes and materials creating a flower-like appearance. This makes the chair truly stand out and adds a comfortable, deep seating experience. The grey fabric upholstery gives a very classical luxurious style to the piece. This model is out of production and therefore an impressive piece of Italian design!
It remains in very good vintage condition with minor wear consistent with age and use, preserving a beautiful patina.
