Here I am sitting on one of Moroso’s sofas in the IDS lounge (Robin dubbed it the BIG sofa). Patrizia Moroso’s talk on her family business was a great look at the history of the furniture brand and their innovative collaborations with a multitude of talented designers.
One of my favorite pieces at the show was the Kona chair designed by Miles Keller of Dystil. Miles Keller has a long resume of experience doing product design for big design brands such as Umbra, Herman Miller and Teknion. Meeting Miles and talking to him about the process of making the chair was awe-inspiring. Congratulations to Miles for being a finalist in Azure’s Awards 2014. [June 2014 note: Miles’ Kona Chair won AZ’s People’s Choice Award for Best Furniture!]
