Design by Marcel Wanders, 2007.
With Moroso, Marcel Wanders experiments with the potential of technology (this time rotational molding) for processing plastics and discovering their new performances. Shitake is a stool with an irregular and quirky shape, reminiscent of the shape of a mushroom. It is a fun, in-your-face item embellished by the surface, decorated as if covered by raised embroidery. The interior is hollow and closed with a removable plug, so that the stool can be filled with water, sand or another substance. Ideal for outside areas. Suitable for indoor/outdoor use.
Shitake is waterproof and fade-resistant. No returns are accepted on this product.
Material(s): Rotationally molded, integrally-colored polyethylene

Designer: Marcel Wanders
Co-founder and Art Director of the Dutch design company Moooi, Marcel Wanders first received worldwide attention for his iconic Knotted Chair created for Droog Design in 1996. The Knotted Chair paired high tech materials with "low tech" production methods, embodying Marcel's chief concern with bringing the human touch back to design. Striving to create a "new age" in which designer, craftsperson, and user are reunited in design process, Wanders mixes innovative materials and techniques to create lasting pieces. A prolific product and interior designer, Wanders has over 1700+ products to his name for private clients and premium brand such as Alessi, Kartell, Moooi, and Flos. Many of his designs have been selected for the most important design collections and exhibitions in the world, including the Museum of Modern Art in New York and San Francisco, the V&A Museum in London, the Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam, Museum Boijmans van Beuningen in Rotterdam, the Central Museum in Utrecht, Museum of Decorative Arts Copenhagen and various Droog Design exhibitions.View other products by Marcel Wanders
Moroso started from the end: it began by considering the end users, their lifestyles and their ways of using their living-rooms. A living room is a place you open to other people, in order to express your hospitality, but can also be a place of quiet and reflection.
