The MOMA collection, designed by Javier Mariscal for the Spanish brand VONDOM, is a group of outdoor items. There was an aim to create a new typology of furniture by combining the functions of a flowerpot and an outdoor table, and thus MOMA was born, a collection characterized by its originality and versatile nature. By asking the question “how do we sit down?” three different versions arose that could be adapted into three different environments: one for a chill-out scene, Low, completed with a very comfortable pouf out of the same collection; another to be used when seated in a chair or armchair, Medium; and another for a standing position or when sitting on a stool, High, ideal for the pleasure of enjoying a cup of wine outdoors. The first sketches showed natural shapes, which as the project developed leaned towards more architectural shapes that call to mind a column with a capital or a corbel.
