Moroso: Italian Furniture Design
Since 1952 Moroso has been designing its sofas, armchairs and accessories with wellknown designers such as Ron Arad, Carlo Colombo, Enrico Franzolini, Marc Newson, Toshiyuki Kita and Patricia Urquiola. Moroso has been constructing its sofas and armchairs aiming at top quality. For its quality, the company was the first producer of upholstered furniture in Italy to receive on 24 June 1994 the ISO 9000 certification for firm management and the ISO 9001 certification for design, production and customer service.
Furthermore from April 1999 we are certified according to ISO 14001 (environment administration). In this case too we have been the first Furniture manufacturer having obtained such an acknowledgment.
Since there is a close connection between quality and impact on the environment, Moroso has decided to use “clean”, nonpolluting production processes, and materials that are natural or as recyclable as possible.
In order to ensure the feasibility – and effectiveness – of this policy, Moroso started from the end: it began by considering the end users, their lifestyles and their ways of using their living-rooms. A living room is a place you open to other people, in order to express your hospitality, but can also be a place of quiet and reflection.
For this reason, it will not be a coincidence if you find yourself sitting on a Moroso armchair during a transoceanic cruise on a Love Boat or when you are a guest at Tina Turner’s or Marina Abramovic´s house or when you are in the Bahrain Islands at the court of His Highness King Hamad Al Khalifa or if you have the unlikely adventure of meeting Pina Restless in private.
Feedback, design, global quality, respect for the environment: all these words are not empty rhetoric for us, but big and little marks of attention that are associated with every single moment of the company´s work.
