The Vertigo side-tables design for Moroso and the 2 central unfolded furnishings which turn from seating into shelf can seduce and engage immediate interaction with everyone perception. Also the black shiny and reflective floor contribute to describe the illusion of movement.

The slightly rotation of the floor and its diagonal cuts which enphasize every access to the lounge area configure a multiple relationships between the existing and the new. This puts in context a vision of architecture with contemporary spacial values tending to emphasize the atmosphere and the interface.
