At Salone del Mobile 2016, MOOOI will introduce a 22 new pieces that majestically will set beautiful compositions giving you a mysteriously and seductive furniture trade show! From 12th to 17th April 2016, during Salone del Mobile’s 55th edition, Moooi invites you to explore an entirely new world of creations at via Savona 56, Milan. Moooi is eager to transform the 1.700 m2 space into a universe of sophistication, surprising creativity and rebellious harmony.
Radiating from this nucleus, numerous side passages lead to 14 luxuriously captivating, and elegantly styled home settings, which embody the rebellious spirit of today’s creative community. This surreal and imaginary world is integrated with 21 new Signature Carpets and 22 new broadloom wall to wall creations.
Thanks to a high resolution printing technology, the carpets complete the home settings with a unique combination of vibrant colours, photo realistic images and magic three dimensional prints that draw you into their world. All these elements are combined under the theme of Rebellious Harmony – a timeless sense of poetry and harmony, qualities at the heart of Moooi’s style since the brand’s inception 15 years ago. “This year’s somewhat paradoxical theme of Rebellious Harmony is perfectly in tune with our own core beliefs”, says Moooi CEO Robin Bevers. “At Moooi, we strive to embrace the polarity between creativity and business, between chaos and order”.
Revolutionary technologies for a bespoke approach to carpet design:
This year, Moooi will present instruments that have been implemented to facilitate the realisation of individual requirements. For ambitious projects, clients are offered the freedom to draft their own carpet design, with the aid of a step by step guidance process that falls under the category Your Own Design. We have also been developing Moooi Works carpets Configurator, a clever digital tool meant mainly for private clients who want to customise a Moooi Works carpet by defining the colours, shape and sizes of its pattern. At this year’s Salone del Mobile, we are looking forward to demonstrate how easily our Moooi Works carpets Configurator functions!
