Modou Armchair - M'Afrique Collection

by Moroso

Price On Application

The Modou armchair is a curvaceous outdoor chair designed by Ron Arad for Moroso. The structure of the chair features dynamic yet playful swirls, executed with an artistic touch characteristic of Ron Arad's work. Modou is named after the metalworker in Senegal with whom Ron Arad collaborated, a celebration of cross-cultural design and craftsmanship. It is part of the M'Afrique collection of outdoor furniture, hand-crafted by artisans in Senegal using woven threads normally used for fishing nets. The designs are all different and original, human in their imperfections and flaws. The Modou armchair is perfect for injecting a dose of colour and fun in the garden, patio or terrace. 

The Modou armchair is part of a collection which includes armchairs, chaises longues and daybeds. These are part of the broader M'Afrique collection of colourful woven furniture, all hand crafted by artisans in Africa.

Ron Arad is an Israeli architect and designer. For more than 25 years he has worked on the thin dividing line between industrial design and contemporary art. In his partnership with Moroso, his plastic and conceptual research added to the company’s interpretative sensitivity. The designer’s audacious genius is assimilated and translated into objects that transcend their mere form to bring a relationship-generating vitality into everyday life.

Moroso is, without doubt, one of the best furniture brands in the world.  Under the creative direction of Patrizia Moroso, the brand combines its manufacturing expertise (especially in sofas and seating) with creative input from leading designers such as Patricia Urquiola, Ron Arad and Nendo to create a broad range of furniture of unmatched quality and creativity.  Moroso products work well for both private and public spaces and are ideal for making a strong design statement.
