Glider, sofa by Ron Arad for Moroso
Combining in an object fun and sensuality, function and stage presence, and concentrating them in an abundant, full, bold form. Glider offsets the structural approach with an instinctive and anthropomorphic interpretation, as if it were the snapshot of an exuberant exploration of volumes, the enigmatic charm, ancestral in some respects, of roundness.
A suggestion strengthened by the physical and conceptual association with movement: thanks to the rocking structure the sofa is transformed into a swing, adding to the comfort and physical presence a new experience, unexpected yet at the same time deeply intimate.
The outcome is absolute, verging on the archetype, as only work performed in the territory opened up between art and industrial design, design and sculpture, can sustain.
Injected flame-retardant polyurethane foam over internal steel frame on transparent PVC glides. Sofa code 951 has steel glider mechanism.
The collection is produced with Blur cat.Z or Pitch cat.Y fabrics and it is not available in leather.
Ther Glider collection covers are not removable.
