Intended for both commercial and residential use, the Gemma collection—first launched in Spring, 2015, in Milan—has been expanded to include a chair, sofa and sofa system for public spaces such as airports and lobbies. “Gemma is an exercise in architecture on a small scale,” says Daniel Libeskind. Asymmetrical hard edges are offset by Blur, a luxurious soft ombre knitted fabric that morphs from dark to light. The multi-faceted profile is reminiscent of a precious gemstone, and of the geometries typical of fifteenth century Italian tapestries. Gemma represents the synergy between the complex geometries for which Libeskind is known, and the highly respected craftsmanship of Moroso’s upholstering abilities. Solid color leather upholstery is another option.
