Morosi alla Finestra (translated as “The Lovers at the Window”), a fabric designed by Gio Ponti in 1930. Ponti, the leading Italian modernist of the 20th century, was best known for his iconic Pirelli Tower in Milan and the enduring Superleggera Chair for Cassina in 1957. His work encompassed a broad and prolific spectrum of architecture and design. New materials used in austere, classic proportions are signature details of Ponti’s work. As the founder and editor of Domus, Ponti was a major influence on the proliferation of the modernist approach after World War II in Italy, Europe and beyond.
Lovers at the Window is a European fabric design favourite, and very hard to source at that. Morosi alla Finestra has been produced under license by New-York based textile house, Maharam, since 2002.
