ROCKPORT COLLECTION:
sculptural function

Each piece is crafted to celebrate the inherent beauty of wood, and explores the line between art and function. To achieve the airiness of Rockport’s elemental forms, we relied on everything we learned as designers and craftsmen, and then developed new techniques to achieve our objective — a form that allows no room to hide.

THE SYNTHESIS OF ART AND FUNCTION
When there are no constraints on mass or aesthetics, it’s relatively simple to construct durable wooden furniture. But true craft lies in achieving durability without sacrificing lightness and grace. The Rockport Collection arrives at that balance by being both impossibly delicate and uncompromisingly durable. Rockport’s seamless, minimalist forms celebrate the purity of wood, the artistry of fine design and the accumulated skill of master craftsmen.

This collection is the latest example of David Moser's intention to raise the bar for, and challenge the limits of craftsmanship; to explore what is possible in woodworking, and from wood as a material. It is in this spirit that the definition of 'traditional joinery' is confronted. What is today experimental, while fundamentally sound, may tomorrow be traditional.
The joinery in this chair consists of a double compound miter with a floating tenon at the front legs, fasteners and our once experimental but now traditional knee at the back legs, and tried and true mortise and tenon joints at the crest to back leg joints.
