ERGONOMY
Upholstered furniture perfectly suited to men and women, i.e. designed to ergonomic standards that must, of necessity, blend with aesthetic appearance.

Ergonomics is the science which, with man as its focal point for methods for analysing, evaluating, correcting and designing systems and environments ‘specifically suited to man’s needs’. An ergonomic product is characterised by a high degree of ‘usability’.

STEEL
Can be used to achieve even complex shapes with reduced thickness yet at the same time great strength.
Steel is also used for making frames that remain visible, which are suitably protected against oxidation by chrome plating, galvanising or nickel plating or by epoxy powder and polyester paint finishes.

STRAPS
Seats of upholstered chairs are fitted with exclusive elastic straps.

Order to be able to support weight in the best and most uniform way, the straps are criss-crossed, with a gap of 40/50 mm between straps. For backrests, the straps are arranged horizontally and the gap between straps varies according to the characteristics of the product.

BASIC PADDING
The polyurethanes form the ideal base for upholstery. They are synthetic but non toxic and , above all, contain no CFCs which are harmful to the ozone layer. Because of their slim, small, open wall cell structure, they are particularly light and permeable to the air. Because it is so light, airy and resilient, upholstery can be subjected to the roughest of treatment and will always spring back to its original shape. Polyurethane foams are produced in different densities, in large slabs up to 60 metres long, which are cut to size. Highest density foam issued to ensure the best, long lasting performance.

COMFORT
Cushions are filled with feather or polyester fibre. Making cushions is a real art; first you need to get the best materials, and then concentrate on careful design and construction, because each type of cushion must give the best results in terms of softness and resilience and these characteristics must be durable. A feather cushion can be recognised by its softness, lightness and comfort. Its seat cushions, polytherane foam as the core, feather for a touch of natural softness and internal fabric with compartments for the feather and polyurethane. The outer casing which is in a pure cotton fabric air must be able to pass through it and the feathers must be able to breathe without coming out of the cushion.

A polyester fibre cushion differs from a feather cushion by the presence of wadding over the whole outer surface.

FEATHER
Feather is the most ancient, traditional upholstery material, much prized because it gives that extra touch of softness and adaptability. It’s an organic material and, like wool, is considered as naturally ‘flame-retardant’, does not require any special treatments and is regarded as excellent for highly safe furnishings.

Prefers goose feathers, which are particularly prized because they have grater resilience and strength and duck feathers smaller and lighter and so offer grater compressibility. Washing and sterilisation processes make feather a hygienically safe material. Overall, they have a constant and durable resilience.

WADDING
Wadding is a synthetic material consisting of circular section, hollow polyester fibres, which provide good bulk and extraordinary softness. Waviness of the individual fibres, the so called saw tooth crimp makes wedding a material that is able to provide excellent and durable supportive bulk. Moroso wadding can be surface treated to feel smooth to the touch and be flame retardant.

FABRICS
The selected fabrics are first subjected to a number of use and maintenance tests in recognised, specialist laboratories, which certify their characteristics with a series of UNI, EN and ISO standards relating to upholstered furniture coverings.

PILLING
The test sample is subjected to a rubbing action by rotation of an elliptical metal disc which has the same fabric mounted on its contact face. The test results indicate the number of revolutions at which pilling was noted due to rubbing between the two pieces of fabric.

LEATHER
Selecting the right leather starts with finding the best pastures and farms, because it has been proved that even the quality of the ecosystem affects the feel and appearance of leather generally known as the right hand. Selection is continuous and rigorous and includes the tannery, where hides are processed using the most advanced and natural methods. Our leathers do not contain pentachlorophenol. Moroso offers colour in its leather too, obtained using aniline dyes; the process takes longer, but is more satisfactory because the colour is more durable. Is also important and is achieved using special beating techniques and several hours rotation in special containers called tumblers.

STITCHING
Three has to be stitching, but it mustn’t be obvious. Different types of thread are used according to the requirements of each type of seam. In general, seams are external or internal.
