Giant Pink Flamingo x 2, at the MFA shop in Houston

FlamingogoThere’s no business like the pink flamingo business, especially at the Moss Bureau enhanced shop at the Museum of Fine Arts Houston. These babies get a lot of attention. No surprise, really. Just the thing to be riding around your pool on these hot hot summer days. Giddy up, Divine! Eat your heart out, John Waters.

RIP, Richard Sapper, father of the Tizio

sapperRichard Sapper designed one of the most popular lamps of all time, the Tizio. That’s it on the upper left of the photo above. Which was taken at Moss, by the way. Just saying. Sapper also designed a nearly as popular espresso maker for Alessi, the 9090, and later an electric version, which is also on the wall, just above his right arm. He also designed the IBM Thinkpad and famously said no to Steve Jobs who wanted him to come to Apple. Click on the photo to go the Times obit. RIP, sir.

Moss Bureau comes of age

MB20162016 is going to be a big year for Moss Bureau. We have new clients, we’re launching a new website, two new Instagram pages and this very blog is about to be transformed into a stupendous forum. For those of you who have been just waiting for something new, watch this space. We’ll starting rolling things out over the next week. Except for the obvious reasons why it’s not, 2016 is going to be a great year to be alive. And, of course, what’s the alternative? Stay tuned, friends and neighbors, stay tuned.

The Final Sale starts Thursday

nevermoreTriggered by the need to finally, after approximately a thousand years, move out of our lovely warehouse in the Brooklyn Navy Yard, welcome to NEVERMORE, the final sale of Moss. Now is the last moment of all time that you can buy something from Moss. 402 West 13th Street, dead center of the Meatpacking District, which didn’t exist when Moss opened in 1994. 11am to 7pm. For everyone sad that we closed and regretting you didn’t buy that special thing, here’s your chance.

Murray, Holding a Jensen Fruitbowl in front of Bamboo

mm22As proof, if you need still more, that Murray really was in Beijing working with Georg Jensen, here he is, in the middle of set up, weighing his options. One of the options will be to eventually put down the fruitbowl. Quite possibly into that box that sits upon the ground in front of him. We’ll never know for sure.

Yes, you’re right. Murray’s back in China.

jensen gardenRemember how Murray was in China last fall? Well, he’s back there again, and once again is working with Georg Jensen. This time it’s during Beijing Design Week, and the opening of the exhibition Jensen’s Garden, which is the first section of the new Jensen Hus headquarters to open. Note his tiny photo in the second row on the brochure, surrounded by pals Marc Newson, Aric Chen and of course, Jensen CEO, David Chu. Click on that tiny face to see the whole thing way bigger.
