Gio Ponti Morosi alla Finestra Cushion 30x60

DESCRIPTION

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.

Size: 30x60cm, comes with feather inner.

ABOUT the MAKER

Rachel Carley Design

Rachel Carley established a ceramic design practice during 1994 in Auckland, New Zealand, after completing her PhD in Architecture. The Rachel Carley Design ceramic collection contains a range of elegant and eclectic forms, which are designed to collaborate with food. The pieces can be mixed and matched in a multitude of ways, introducing variation to the dining experience.

A sustainable imperative informs Rachel's design practice. The ceramics are proudly made in New Zealand, and have become collectables, so are less likely to be part of a disposable ‘throwaway’ culture. They are designed to be used through breakfast, elevenses, lunch, and dinner, becoming intimately connected with the eating rituals and tea & coffee ceremonies of everyday life.

Our new Rachel Carley Design cushion collection celebrates luxury textiles, each produced in collaboration with selected artists. Designed to act as fine artworks for your sofa, these cushions celebrate colour, pattern and texture and each has a particular story to tell.
