The blown forms of the armchairs billow out from the seat like wind filled sails, creating a sense of lightness and movement, while providing degrees of privacy and seclusion. The form language explores the use of surface and volume through a combination of thin upholstered sides with voluminous soft cushions on the inside providing comfort for working on the move. The collection consists of a high and low back armchair and a fully upholstered dining chair on a pedestal.

Armchairs in a ranges of sizes with high or low back and a dining chair. Injected flame-retardant polyurethane foam over internal steel frame. Armchair legs are steel with powder coat finish in colors shown; dining chair base is fully upholstered. Covers are not removable.


Doshi Levien

Nipa Doshi was born in 1971 into a Gujarati family of Mumbai.

She graduated from the Royal College of Art, London, in 1997 but she soon returned to India to work with local craftspeople. After a short stay she went back to London where she met Jonathan Levien, a Scot who had recently finished his master’s in furniture design at the Royal College. The synergy between Nipa and Jonathan clicked immediately; in fact they set up Doshi Levien in 2000 and got married. The combination of the two cultures and creativities generated a very special, innovative design concept. Nipa’s is heavily influenced by the visual culture and materials of India, Jonathan’s is rooted in industrial design. Together, their work celebrates cultural hybridism and explores a combination of technology, narration and industrial and craft design.


Moroso has been working in close collaboration with some of the world’s most talented designers to produce luxury sofas and seating since 1952.
