Patrizia Moroso to present International Design Talk at NGV

Furniture and product design entrepreneur Patrizia Moroso will deliver the International Design Talk at NGV International on 6 October 2016.

Patrizia Moroso, art director of the furniture company Moroso, will explore a diverse landscape of creativity in business spanning art, fashion, architecture and design.

Moroso has been one of Italy’s leading furniture manufacturers since 1952, and focuses on foward-thinking design and redefining traditional concepts of the way people interact with space.

“Fabrics are our main material. We are basically making dresses for bodies which are chairs, armchairs and sofas. The fabrics are a part of the project from the beginning with the designers, because it’s part of the personality of the objects,” Moroso said.

Over the past 25 years, Patrizia Moroso has combined technology and craftsmanship to build a collection of iconic design products, all sharing the same essence while maintaining the uniqueness and diversity of the local origins of each piece.

The talk is free but bookings are essential. Call NGV on 03 8662 1555 to book your place.
