Ron Arad is a renowned designer who is known to push the limitations of material for his works, giving his pieces a unique flare that complements contemporary spaces -- with a recent example being his modern chairs that were produced by Moroso, an Italian furniture brand.

The cut-out designs were made for the Wastergate Hotel's recently opened restaurant -- a location that carries a strong political connection. As a means to pay tribute to Luigi Moretti's design of the building during the 1960s, Ron Arad features a flowing curved seat for the modern chairs -- reflecting the architecture of the building's walls.

As Moroso explains, "Arad's concept was to honor the context while creating something complementary and new, enhancing Moretti's original curves with some of his own."
