As usual at Moroso, the design is innovative, even futuristic and so it stands out from the usual pabulum in a refreshing way. This is also due to the elaborate side parts that could also be from a science fiction movie.
The extraordinary name of the seating furniture stems from particle physics, where gluons (to glue) are subatomic elementary particles that are directly responsible for the attraction of protons and neutrons inside a nucleus. A certain attraction is also originating from Gluon. After having sat down you like to stay “glued”.
- Design: Marc Newson, 1993
- Seat and back are injected flame-retardant polyurethane foam over internal steel frame. Sides are rigid polyurethane with grey lacquer finish. Base is steel with grey lacquer finish.
- GLUON covers are not removable.
The 2-seat and 3-seat sofas of the Gluon series are also available.
