Eight years into their collaborative relationship, New York-based designer Marc Thorpe is launching his latest piece for Moroso for their outdoor collection called Moroso M’Afrique. DayTrip comprises various components that are used as low tables and benches that pay homage to the Italian brand’s multi-cultural ethos. The design allows the user to create a composition for themselves, giving them ownership of the product and design for which they can use with others.

The frames are made in Dakar, Senegal, while the cushions are created in Udine, Italy, bringing together Moroso’s modern spirit with Senegal’s hand-craftsmanship making it truly a global design.
