From Father to Son
There is a very interesting story behind the Windward Bookcase, which dates back to the 1920s. While growing up in Chicago, Tom Moser had to endure the loss of both of his parents before finishing high school. His father Joseph Moser, a pressman at the Chicago Tribune, died on Tomís eighteenth birthday in 1953. Shortly thereafter Tom had quit school, left home, and joined the air force. When Tom came back some years later, there was almost nothing what so ever left from his mother and father. He had some little coffee cups from his mother, and nothing from his father. Then in the late 1980s, Tomís uncle Walter gave Tom a bookcase which had been made by Tomís father as a gift for his sister, Tomís aunt Annie, in the 1920s. It is nicely designed and well made Arts & Crafts style bookcase, and to this day it is the only thing that Tom owns that once belonged to his father. In designing the Windward Bookcase Tom made a number of changes, including removable shelves, but thatís where it began, from an approximately 1922 bookcase that was designed and built by Joseph Moser. It also influenced the entire Windward Collection, included the patented Windward Chair and Sofas.
Part of the Windward Collection. See also: Windward Two Place Sofa, Windward Lounge Chair
