‘oasis’ is a series of different seating islands — from a single chair to a sofa — focusing on the aspect of upholstery in its design. conceived by swiss atelier oï for moroso, the collection draws on a desire to create different components which can be separated so that the user may change the fabric quite simply according to their tastes, by the season etc also making it easy to clean. the overall framework of the furniture takes cues from the way an embroidery hoop functions, whereby each seat is composed of two main elements: a base with legs, and a top hoop structure which also employs the backrest of each. any type of fabric may be draped over the cushion which sits atop the leg supports, held in place by the girdle-like module, offering a snug fit over the foam — draped like a veil over the padding.atelier oi moroso designboom sofa version
