Blurred Limits: Marc Thorpe for Moroso
In conjunction with Archtober in New York, Moroso presents “Blurred Limits” an exhibition on the work of American architect and designer, Marc Thorpe in its showroom at 146 Greene Street, NYC on October 22. The exhibition, also designed by Thorpe, reflects the binding ideology shared by this designer and manufacturer to push the limits of technology, material, form and space.
The collaboration of Thorpe and Moroso began in 2010 with the introduction of the Mark Table. The next project, Blur, now in production, makes its US debut, and concerns Thorpe’s ideas on uncertainty and disappearance. ”This distortion of mass provides the Blur Sofa with an irrefutable uncertainty of dimension, achieving this quality of invisibility through a new technique of fabric knitting,” says Thorpe.
Morning Glory, a prototype, makes its international premiere in New York. The inspirational Morning Glory vine grows and wraps around itself, reinforcing the structure and spreading leaves into a canopy of surfaces that retain water. This organic architecture lends itself to the namesake table.
WantedDesign will co-host a by-invitation Conversation with Marc Thorpe and Patrizia Mosoro, at the Moroso showroom in Soho, New York.
