The Double Zero Collection by Architect David Adjaye for Moroso is a study of form and an exploration of the primary composition required to support the body in space. Beginning with two circular supports – ‘Double Zero’ (the seat and the back) -the chair is enclosed in a series of metal loops that suspend the two elements, so that they appear to float.

The upholstered cushions are held within rings of tubular stainless steel, which is also bent to form a supporting frame of sleigh-type legs and optional arms.

Finished in chrome, the metal is also used to form a square element spanning the gap between the legs of the chair, bracing the structure and providing a footrest.

The design is also doubled up to form a small two-seater sofa, with the pair of pads placed side by side and joined where the metal hoops touch.

The metal frames are available in a range of colours, and upholstery options will include plain and patterned fabrics as well as leather.
