Thanks to its comfortable, luxurious appearance and an ergonomic seating experience, Moon transitions seamlessly between a variety of spaces, from lobby reception areas, libraries, hotels and offices, to your own home. 

Sit. Converse. Wait. Read. This seat is modern art that provides a feeling of security and relaxation. 


Patrick Norguet (1969, France) made his breakthrough as a designer at the end of the 1990s. Given his sense of colour, formal restraint and elegant purity coupled with character and his continual search for comfort, it’s no wonder that he started designing for Artifort in 2002. That year he designed the characteristic Apollo armchair, followed by many other successful designs. Various museums throughout the world have included his pieces in their collections. Norguet is acclaimed for designing exclusive offices, the Okko hotels and the McDonalds restaurant on the Champs-Élysées in Paris. In 2014 GQ Magazine named him ‘Designer of the Year’
