Shadowy Armchair - M'Afrique Collection

by Moroso

The Shadowy armchair designed by Tord Boontje for Moroso is hand-crafted using woven threads normally used for fishing nets. The designs are all different and original, human in their imperfections and flaws. The Shadowy armchair is perfect for injecting a dose of colour and fun in the garden, patio or terrace.

The Shadowy armchair is available in 6 patterns or in 18 solid colours. Only armchairs in finishes currently in stock are offered for immediate orders - please make your selection in the Finish option above. For other finishes please contact us for more information on availability and lead times.

The Shadowy armchair is part of a collection which also includes a sunny chair, two chaises longues and a footstool. These are part of the broader M'Afrique collection of colourful woven furniture, all hand crafted by artisans in Africa.

Tord Boontje is known for his expression of romanticism in contemporary design. Some of his designs are whimsical and light-hearted; at the same time they can connect with strong emotions. Originally from the Netherlands, Boontje’s education at the Eindhoven Design Academy and the Royal College of Art in London set the foundations for Studio Tord Boontje. Established in 1996, the studio has worked with international companies on a range of products that includes lighting, graphic identity, textiles, ceramics, site-specific installations, and furniture. 

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.
