daniel libeskind considers design to be an exercise in small architecture, whereby ‘the landscape is replaced by the definition of a space and the population density by the single individual‘. his ‘gemma’ sofa for moroso expresses this notion, standing as a composition of asymmetrical sharp edges derived from 3D shapes — offset by the softness of its upholstery. the seating piece was developed from the idea of contrast, and the perception gained from interpreting a form which is the opposite of what one would usually expect. making its debut at the 2015 salone del mobile, the multi-faceted profile is both reminiscent of a precious stone, and the typical geometries of 15th century tapestries. daniel-libeskind_gemma_moroso_designboom_007
