MOROSO presents: M’AFRIQUE a major off-salon event devoted to Africa
“Our intention is to showcase the creativity of a few of the great artists and exponents of contemporary African culture,” explains Patrizia Moroso, who devised the event, “because looking at Africa through the eyes of contemporary art, photography, architecture and design is perhaps the most appropriate way of approaching this vast, powerful continent, so creatively rich and diverse that today it is still one of western modernity’s greatest sources of inspiration”. African-American designer Stephen Burks was asked to design the exhibition (held in Moroso’s Milan showroom) which presents works by Fathi Hassan, Soly Cissé, Mandémory and architect David Adjaye, as well as new, African-inspired designs from Patricia Urquiola and Philippe Bestenheider. Bibi Seck and Ayse Birsel created a wide range of attractive, softly rounded products, such as Madame Dakar. Also featured: iconic Moroso products specially upholstered in African fabrics!
