Rain by Tord Boontje for Moroso



Milan 08: designer Tord Boontje launched Rain, an outdoor collection for Moroso, at the Little Wild Garden of Love exhibition at Moroso's showroom on Via Pontaccio in Milan.


The collection includes a table, chair and armchair made from tubular steel with perforated sheet metal surfaces.


The delicate patterns are laser cut out of the sheet material in the seats and backs of the chairs and the table top.

Rain Collection by Tord Boontje

Rain Chair and Rain Table constitute an alternative way of working both metal and sheet metal. They have a tubular steel structure and plates of perforated sheet metal that are laser decorated with delicate images and natural scenes characteristic of Tord Boontje’s work.


The shapes are a contemporary reworking of the classic wrought iron garden furniture, embellished and made lighter by the laser flower working of the surfaces. Rain Collection is a lightweight, delicate and refined set of furniture that looks to the future.


The products have been devised for outdoors but can also be used indoors, also being a good proposal for contract furnishing.

    This guy is so boring with his designs that I almost enter into a coma…

  • zuy

    it’s not always but often “surface design” and “surface design” is not design but style…he is considered by a trend designer

    Boring? Not at all. It’s very subtle. It looks so elegant.

  • FBot

    I like the table better then the chairs

  • matteo

    we dont need this kind of products

  • dexaler

    it made more sense to call it ‘Sun’,
    if the laser punctured through the surface it may make a nice projection on the ground with sunlight
    and who sits outside with rain?
