On a nearby wall is a photo of an earlier project for Moroso whose echoes are visible in the Capo chair: The duo’s upholstered Paper Planes seats, where they contrasted a reference to folded graph paper (the practical) with rows of tiny Swarovski crystals (the whimsical). Also pictured are two remnants from the making of the Impossible Wood chair: Two black-and-white images of sculptures by Martin Puryear, whose 1977 Cedar Lodge piece (bottom) was a direct inspiration.
