FLEXFORM launched Flexform MOOD in 2001, a complete collection for the home and contract, to respond to the international taste for sober, sophisticated classic furniture. Until 2005 the collection was entirely created by the American designer John Hutton. The collection for 2007 was designed by Carlo Colombo, after which the architect Roberto Lazzeroni has designed all the new products. In 2016 Stefano Gaggero was appointed to coordinate the overall style of the collection, in terms of fabrics, colors, finishes and combinations.

- Roberto Lazzeroni was born in Pisa, the town where he has chosen to live and work. His professional development is linked to his studies - Art and Architecture in Florence – and the interests that he developed over the years as an attentive participant in the phenomena of conceptual art and Radical Design.
In the early 80’s, he debuts in the working world with a series of important works of “architectural interiors” that are immediately noticed and published by Italian and foreign magazines.
“Architecture of interiors” is, according to him, a necessary discipline, a gym where you can do many types of exercise, on materials and techniques and problems of the home environment. A fundamental experience for the subsequent approach to the world of product design.
Very receptive to the history of design and its landmarks, Lazzeroni likes to define his very recognizable style with the expression “sentimental design.” It is indeed easy, even for an untrained eye, to perceive the tension between past and future in his works. The designs of Roberto Lazzeroni are without industrial geometric ostentation but also without frivolous esthetics, he links objects to a history, to a tradition, in a collective or autobiographic memory.
This is his way of understanding design, and it brought him to specialize in real, true concepts, which are hidden behind the birth of a new trademark. After the experience with Ceccotti Collezioni, which started in 1988, today Lazzeroni also collaborates with many others important firms.
Roberto Lazzeroni’s very dynamic career today finds him committed on various fronts, with prestigious collaborations, art direction, and interior design projects and with contracts in various parts of the world.
