Moroso participates as a technical partner in the 2020 Tokyo Olympics with the Impossible Wood chairs, designed by the duo Doshi Levien. The chairs are present in the common areas of Casa Italia, located in Tokyo at “The Kihinkan – Takanawa Manor House”, a building characterised by early 20th century Art Nouveau architecture situated in the Minato district, about 10 kilometres from the Olympic Village and the Main Press Centre. During the Games of the XXXII Olympiad, Casa Italia is the meeting place for the athletes of the Italian team in Tokyo.

With an essential and refined profile, Impossible Wood is the result of a long research work undertaken by the two designers that tells a story of visual, geometric and perceptive investigation: a new formal sequence that mediates naturalness, interfering with it, preserving, in a moulded plastic product, the visual and tactile qualities of wood.
