london-based italian designer martino gamper conceived a series of eight re-interpreted moroso pieces for the company’s 60th anniversary entitled ‘the metamorfosi’. gamper referenced furniture items from various well-known designers – taking elements from one part of the original work and adding to another, using a kind of physical collage to create new designs. working with the udine factory team, gamper hybridized the forms using foam structures moulded over steel and wooden structures as a theme to tie together the various couches, chairs and seating – finished with colorful patchwork-like fabric. the experimental structures extend from gamper’s earlier investigations into furniture reworking with projects like ‘if gio only knew’, ‘martino mollin’ and ‘100 chairs in 100 days’.
