Conversation with Marc Thorpe (MOROSO) and Jos Pelders (FEBRIK).
Founded in 1952, Moroso is internationally-recognized as one of the most innovative furniture manufacturers, successfully merging advanced technology with traditional craftsmanship. Famous for its mastery with upholstery, Moroso collaborates with world-renowned designers to realize complex designs. Moroso also finds itself seeking similarly innovative manufacturers in order to complete a designer's vision. To create a 3D textile which would satisfy the requirements of a product by Japanese designer Tokujin Yoshioka, Moroso turned to Febrik, an established firm making quilted household products. Together, they have formed a creative partnership that has pioneered 3D knitted fabrics for upholstery. Marc Thorpe has designed furniture for Moroso is also the designer of two of Febrik's recent textiles Blur and Husk. Mirko van den Winkel, Executive Vice President of Moroso USA, will moderate the discussion between Marc Thorpe and Jos Pelders.
