These fabrics specially designed by the Dutch Edward Van Vielt for the Sushi collection by Moroso are stunning. I really like the mix match of patterns. He gave a whole new meaning to patchworks.
Edward Van Vielt said in an interview that he was influenced by Marrakesh, the culture of the Far East and Middle East plus the Spirograph to create the patterns of the Sushi collection. The Spirograph was one of my favorite games as a child. And it still fascinates me today.
The collection plays with geometry in forms and patterns. It is not everyday that you see a furniture collection that could successfully integrate the straight angles of the Karmacoma sofa with the roundness of the Donut ottoman or the Juju armless seats. After Amsterdam and Milan, the Sushi collection was given an enthusiastic reception in the New York showroom of Moroso. Visitors of 2009 Salone del Mobile can admire the Sushi collection until next Monday.
