Moooi converted the space into a universe of sophistication, surprising creativity and rebellious harmony – a timeless sense of poetry and harmony, qualities at the heart of Moooi’s style since the brand’s inception 15 years ago
The exhibition explores the first 50 years of Gufram through its most symbolic projects, the ones that in recent years have revived the legend of the brand and its mad and disruptive visions.
Moooi presented an assembly of vibrant living quarters and original product displays, blended into the timeless atmospheres of a unique exhibition of awe-inspiring 4.5 mtr high photographs by Italian maestro photographer Massimo Listri.
The connection that has been established between Erwin Olaf and Marcel Wanders has run since the start of Moooi.
