Moroso Diatom Stackable Chair for Indoor and Outdoor Use by Ross Lovegrove

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

Ross Lovegrove has described how much during his boyhood he loved looking at the fossils that came into view in the rocks along the shore near his home when the tide went out. Ever since, those observations of that ancestral and mysterious beauty present in forms of nature have continued to illumine and inspire his thinking and the
design projects he produces. Diatom, a stackable aluminium chair, takes its shape from the frustum of a diatom, this primordial single-cell organism with silica skeleton found in bodies of water the world over. Refined ornamental geometry in three-dimensions, a marvel of structure devised from exploring the rules of mathematics that dictate the vegetative development of living organisms. Production adopts a technology developed in the automotive sector to reduce both the weight and the production cost of the seats; die-cast aluminium sheeting ensures the lightest weight and eliminates the need for steel while ensuring equivalent levels of performance.

Painted or anodized aluminium. Legs are aluminium and steel on polyethylene glides. Suitable for indoor/outdoor use. The armchair is stackable up to four, with care.

Customization Options

Available in 7 colors or anodized aluminum as per the specs provided. All suitable for outdoor use. Price in any of the 7 colors: $740 Price for anodized aluminum: $960
