‘Lo Sguardo Laterale: Moroso’, an exhibition at the Musée des Tissus (fabric) in Lyon, France, tells the story of Italian design brand Moroso. Of the many features in the sprawling exhibition curated by Patrizia Moroso and Marco Viola, a rich brocade from the 18th century re-edited by Venetian company Rubelli has been used to dress some of the most iconic pieces from the contemporary Moroso collection.

“The exhibition is an off-centre exploration of the relationships between ideas, forms, fabrics and colours, to tell the story of a company which has always freely and skilfully combined creativity with craftsmanship.” says the Musée des Tissus.

“One of the most interesting features of the exhibition is a rich brocade created by the Venetian company Rubelli which faithfully reproduces a weave pattern which is held at the Museum in Lyon and has been attributed to Philippe de Lasalle, one of the leading figures in the eighteenth century silk industry. This luxurious fabric, with its elegant decorative motif and high thread count, has been used to dress some of the most iconic pieces from the Moroso collection, such as the Patricia Urquiola-designed chairs Smoke, Bohemian, and Fjord.”
