Moss Presents "Bavaria" Collection at Design Miami 2008
Starting December 3, Moss will present Studio Job's latest collection, Bavaria, at this year's Design Miami. Bavaria is the collection of marquetry furnishings, crafted from Indian Rosewood and featuring laser-cut inlays of various country images: barns, horse corrals, silos, farm animals.
The group of pieces is the juxtaposition of age-old marquetry, which cuts veneer in intricate patterns to be placed on furniture or other objects, and modern laser-cutting technique. The sought-after furniture has been produced in a limited edition of six pieces per model, exclusive to Moss. The Rosewood bench, above, will be available through Moss, price upon request.
Studio Job was last in the news at Christie's Post-war and Contemporary Art sale, where an ebony and laser-cut maple bench from its Perished Collection reached a final price of over $95,000. The auction house said the piece "yield[ed] an expressionistic symbolism superimposed upon an absurdist, semifunctional monumentalism."
