Moon is a chair by the designer Tokujin Yoshioka for the Italian manufacturer Moroso. Moon was presented on the Milan furniture fair 2011 to the public for the first time and it formed the focus of the Twilight-Installation from Moroso. With water and steam, the chair was immersed in a shiny twilight so that its elegant and weightless design was especially emphasized.
The designer Tokujin Yoshioka was inspired by phenomena and processes surrounding us in our natural environment. His main inspiration sources were light and shadows, as they are viewable at night near the moon, who is the name giver of the chair. That is why the Japan Yoshioka describes the design like that: ”Moon is a chair that takes its suggestion out of the beauty of the light and the shadows of the moon – an escaping moonlight that shines suddenly and disappears instantly again.”
Moroso offers the Moon Chair with its transparent, airy-soft lines and the elegant design in a matt and a lacquered variant. As matt version, the chair is light-resistant and weatherproof, being adapted to indoor and outdoor use. Moon is available in white, grey and black, in both versions equally.
