Moss At Design Miami, Part One: Bavaria

MOSS at DESIGN MIAMI, part one: BAVARIA
At Design Miami 2008, Moss will unveil Bavaria, a spectacular new suite from Dutch design team Studio Job. This collection of five marquetry furnishings in Indian Rosewood features intricate and fine multi-colored laser-cut inlays in a bucolic farm motif. With its brightly-coloured symmetrical, ‘book-matched’ inlays, the pieces depict bountiful scenes of farm life, including red barns and silos, horse corrals and dog houses, sunflowers, vegetables, pigs, chickens, and other such iconography. While inspired by 17th and 18th century Bavarian hand-painted furniture and embracing the age old technique of marquetry, Studio Job employed modern technology to laser cut the inlays to achieve a flawlessly executed design and an almost seamless surface. The collection is offered in a limited edition of six pieces per model exclusive internationally to Moss.

Nynke Tynagel and Job Smeets of Studio Job offer Bavaria fresh off the heels of critical and commercial debuts of 2007 which included “Homework” a series of seven bronze sculptures, and “Robber Baron,” five monumental bronze furnishings introduced by Moss at Design Miami 2007. Studio Job was the subject of “Bold” the design team’s first retrospective at the inaugeral exhibition of the design museum Designhuis in the Netherlands and at the “Z33” exhibition in Belgium. They were the solo focus of Moss’s selection for Design Miami/Basel where pieces from “Robber Baron,” “Perished” and the complete suite of “Homework” were exhibited. The marketplace has responded to Studio Job’s signature of blurring lines between art and design as well, with their inclusion, along with works by Ron Arad and Shiro Kuramata, in Christie’s London Fall auction of blue chip contemporary fine art, “Post War & Contemporary Art” sale, the first time Design was included in such a sale.

Fernando and Humberto Campana have been awarded Designer of the Year by Design Miami, placing them in the company of previous winners Zaha Hadid, Marc Newson and Tokujin Yoshioka.
The designation is a reflection of the tremendous success the Campanas have had in recent years in both the academic world and in the market for limited edition studio design.
As the exclusive representative of work by the Estudio Campana in North America, Moss has selected works for presentation at Design Miami 2008 which reflect not only some of the most important works they have produced but also typify our long standing collaborative relationship. This shared vision has resulted in works such as a special 34 piece installation of Campane di Campana, a historic project orchestrated by Murray Moss between the Campanas and the Murano glassmaker Venini. Also on exhibition are exclusive variations on two of their most indelible creations, “Favela” and “Corallo,” created for Moss in 2004. Additional works include the “Panda Chair” from the celebrated “Banquette” series, and selections from the acclaimed “Sushi” series.
