Gemma Collection

Moroso Completed

Intended for both commercial and residential use, the Gemma collection—first launched in Spring, 2015, in Milan—has been expanded to include a chair, sofa and sofa system for public spaces such as airports and lobbies. “Gemma is an exercise in architecture on a small scale,” says Daniel Libeskind. Asymmetrical hard edges are offset by Blur, a luxurious soft ombre knitted fabric that morphs from dark to light. The multi-faceted profile is reminiscent of a precious gemstone, and of the geometries typical of fifteenth century Italian tapestries.
