As part of last year’s 60th birthday celebration, Moroso has chosen the Lyon Museum of Textiles to host a new exhibition of of the company’s work. Co-curated by Patrizia Moroso and Marco Viola, the new exhibition takes a lateral look at the company’s recent history of iconic furniture designs.
A notable characteristic of the exhibition is a brocade created by the Venetian textile company Rubelli. This textile faithfully reproduces a weave pattern which is held at the Museum in Lyon and has been attributed to Philippe de Lasalle, one of the leading figures in the eighteenth century silk industry. This luxurious fabric (pictured below) has been used to dress some of the most iconic pieces from the Moroso collection, such as the Patricia Urquiola-designed chairs Smock, Bohemian, and Fjord.
