The Madame Dakar Sofa by Moroso is set in a varnished steel structure. Using an ancient fishnet knitting technique inspired by African craftsmanship, intricate herringbone patterns are manually woven with colorful polyethylene filaments.
The result is a multihued piece of artwork whose patterns exude hints of optical illusion. Of interest is the peculiar structure of the legs; majestically diverging outward like the legs of a traditional African stool. This particular design choice is a drift away from the typical leg structure. In its entirety, Madame Dakar bears a striking semblance to a voluptuous, well-decorated woman.
