ABOUT THE FORESIDE MIRROR

The Foreside Mirror is inspired by and is a companion piece to the Foreside Bed and as such the intention of the design is to embody and magnify all things Thos. Moser; a dedication to functionally driven objects, formal simplicity, the characteristic elimination of ornament, use and celebration of natural materials and traditional woodworking techniques - all with an emphasis on craftsmanship.

Both Foreside pieces aim to embrace our craft capabilities and define 'visible joinery' in a new way with the collection's hallmark joint; a pinned through tenon. That joint is found atop the two vertical side posts that form the frame of the mirror and pierce a top stack laminated bow that extends to one side to become a hook for a various textiles, or perhaps a bathrobe...allowing the function to dictate the form.

The bow itself is the product of stack laminating. Once the several layers of solid wood veneer are glued and pressed into a form that establishes the overall arch of the bow, it is shaped to the final round profile. The holes are then drilled on the CNC for accuracy.

The mirror will always be a single wood species. That is, if specified in white oak (as shown), the legs and the bow will be white oak. Same applies for walnut, cherry, etc.

Each mirror will be shipped with an anti-tip kit for installation upon delivery.
