Fresh From Collective 2 Design Fair: Hella Jongerius

In case you missed it (for shame!), this May, at Collective 2, Moss Bureau presented a selective retrospective of the work of Hella JongeriusThe exhibit included studio work, solo exhibitions, commissions and collaborative pieces developed over the artist’s long history and friendship with Moss. The Moss Gallery always carried something of Hella’s.  And now Moss continues the tradition by presenting the pieces on the Moss Bureau site, for sharing, for educating, for pleasing and of course, for sale.

The Time is Come, The Day Draweth Near

The Hella Jongerius Exhibit at Collective 2 is finally coming together, and we couldn’t be more excited! Because we’re so good at sneaking peaks for you, here are some previews of what’s to come this weekend. Remember, Collective 2 runs from May 8 through the 11th at Skylight at Moynihan Station, and Hella’s exhibit is a special solo of her work. Be there!

Monday morning means yet another exciting day at the Bureau, this time in the company of Interior Design Magazine’s Editor in Chief Cindy Allen and Managing Editor Helene Oberman. The project is an exciting cross-collaboration of fashion,  art and interiors that features Cecile Zu Hohenlohe’s sculptural rings and the latest additions to Material ConneXion’s library. That’s all we can say for now, but look for it in the upcoming edition of Interior Design! Fine, you can have this sneak peak to hold you over until then. Just this once.

Well, the tea pot may. We wouldn’t recommend drinking hot liquids out of Baccarat crystal.

We’re talking of course, about our exciting Monday morning photo shoot for Moss Bureau’s L’ArcoBaleno online gallery and shop, featuring curated sets from the MossPop store, and the Bureau’s Private Sales and exclusive collection of rare, limited edition and hand crafted pieces.

Corian makes a great kitchen counter, sure, but a ring? Really?


Yessiree. Fresh for 2012, Moss has a boxful of lovely little rings made in Corian and lined with felt of many colors. Red, orange, blue, purple, yellow, black, green and chartreuse, to be exact. If you’ve ever wanted your hand to just kind of disappear when you’re in a modern kitchen, (and, really, who hasn’t?)
this is your chance. They’re only $65 each so you could get one for each finger. Or for each day of the week. Or some for day, some for night. Or uptown/downtown, Manhattan/Brooklyn. How about one for each failed Republican presidential candidate. Bloss could go on and on. But Bloss won’t.

Curiously, the prostitutes themselves preferred gold and diamonds

According to Susanne Klemm, the REDLIGHT jeweler. She said, last night at the Case Side chat at Moss, that her Amsterdam redlight district workspace still had a bed in it when she moved all her studio tools in. Ewwwwwww. And the working girls were still around during the year she worked there and she tried to interest them in her contemporary jewelry, but they weren’t into it. Unlike the working girls (and guys) in attendance at the chat. Look at them. Rapt. Wouldn’t you be? Sweetheart rings here.

Hey sweetheart, ring me.

Did you see the piece in the Times today about cameos? Apparently, they’re all the hipster rage. Well, we got our own cameos. Sweetheart Rings by Susanne Klemm, Dutch artist and jewelry maker. These are part of her “Red Light” collection, which, continuing our popular prostitute theme, was created when her studio was in the red light district of Amsterdam. We do not make these things up. Here a couple more.

The Gold Zipper Necklace


I mean, really. What can Bloss say? Bloss is so rarely at a loss for words but this situation is so complique, as the French might say. Or unzipped, as Bloss would say. Wearing a Zipper necklace would demonstrate solidarity. With whom, one might ask. Indeed. Quel fromage.
Regardez le zippaire necklace.
