One crucial day left for the Moss Archives auction at Paddle8

STOP2 Please, please,  don’t live the rest of your life as a bitter and disappointed design collector. We know how miserable that will make you and those dear to you. First, you will begin to lose interest in everything you now love. You will start drinking more and more, secretly, and then openly, brazenly. And eventually, yes, we have seen this so many times before, you will spiral out of control. This sad path is so very clear, but it is not inevitable. We can but urge you to click through, now,  to the Paddle8 auction and take this final opportunity to give yourself the gift of great design, and thereby save yourself from a life of eternal dissatisfaction and design barrenness. We do not say this to benefit ourselves in any way, of course.  Our only concern is you. One day left.

Moss Gets Sky High

For those of you who are not fortunate enough to call New York home (yeah, we’re that arrogant), we thought we’d give you a taste of our “Under a Full Moon” exhibition, which we celebrated with an opening last week. Click on the name of the artist or designer for his or her galaxy of goods. You might want to lean away from the computer so you don’t drool on the keyboard. If you decide against it, don’t say we didn’t warn you!

Under a Full Moon: Moss Lunacy

“Holy the lone juggernaut!” goes the caveat in Ginsberg’s “Howl.” Well, we might as well own our greatness so we’re going to be doing a bit of howling tonight as we instigate a wine reception celebrating our newest exhibition. We were a little out there with the name, we know, but it’s, um, a full moon. Snap!

Best to wear some shades: even if Luna doesn’t shine brightly enough to warrant them, the gallery’s glistening with new tidbits by a long list of the greatest names in design. We can’t promise there won’t be a bit of craziness afoot, as our avant-garde design tastes do bring out the edgy in everyone, but we promise not to bite (hard). Can’t speak for the other howlers around; just in case, we suggest you leave your pooch at home!

The exhibition will feature master Studio works and Studio/Industrial collaborations resulting in unique pieces as well as limited editions, along with current and vintage production. Just to whet your appetite, here’s a partial list of the artists and designers on view:

Stop by 150 Greene Street between 6 and 8pm if you dare! Once inside, it’s anybody’s guess as to what’s safe and what’s not. Bwahaha…

 

Moss Book Smarts (Not For Dummies)

Media_http4bpblogspot_lbaau
Moss and Swarovski Crystal Palace go back. Way back. We’ve been showing these rock star chandeliers since the first seminal collection, and we can prove it because the new book about the collection is filled with images from that massive installation. Speaking of which, we’re also launching that book. Coincidence? I don’t think so. There’s a strong connection between Moss and Crystal Palace. 

Nadja wanted to reinvent the chandelier (which she has) and Moss wanted to reposition design (which we have). Is it coincidence we turned to the same creative pool of design and artistic talent? The overlap of designers who have both created chandeliers for the collection and also have other work at Moss is in the range of 110 percent, at least.

Look at the index in the book: the Campana brothers, Tom Dixon, Yves Behar, Zaha Hadid, Tokujin Yoshioka, Ron Arad, Studio Job, Michael Anastassiades, Gaetano Pesce, Amanda Levete, Arik Levy, Barber Osgersy, Ingo Maurer, Jaime Hayon, Marcel Wanders, Marcus Tremonto, the Bouroullecs, Ross Lovegrove, Vincent van Duysen, and, of course, Tord Boontje, whose Blossom is probably the brightest of some pretty bright lights.

And speaking of Studio Job, we just happened to have launched their gorgeous new book two days ago. We are just a book-launching machine over here. Buy one, get the other one at full price: what a deal! When/where will you find them? Click on the book cover to buy from our website, or at the store, of course. And not just during opening hours but during our late night shopping and book launch event on Wednesday night, 12.15.10, from 6 to 8:30. Shop, have a glass of wine, buy the book, drink some more, shop some more. All of life’s pleasures in one place.
