Ron Arad, 2023

A sofa-sculpture, an exemplary blend of design skill and craftsmanship. A chance encounter becomes the pretext for creating a sofa that overcomes the temptation of the ready-made, stepping back from its provocative or symbolic scope. A wool mattress abandoned on a pavement offers itself up as an objet trouvé, encouraging an imaginary operation of salvage and decontextualization. The mattress, at the end of its life cycle, inspires ides for new forms of use in the designer, offering itself as the starting point for further structural analysis – a short step. Matrizia, a witty fusion of the word mattress with Patrizia, takes shape in the Moroso workshops, configured as a sofa-sculpture, an exemplary blend of design skill and craftsmanship.

A limited edition will be finalised and released in June 2023, and pre-orders are now being taken.
