NEW DESIGNS

New designs continue to push us along the path of exploration that Tom Moser, along with his wife Mary and their four young sons, embarked upon more than 40 years ago. In 2013, Adam Rogers was named Director of Design and Product Development. With his designs, and through collaboration with other talented designers, Adam brings his own approach to product design while maintaining a devotion to Thos. Moser philosophies of clean simple lines, discreet integration of functional components, utilization of traditional joinery techniques, and bringing out the essence of solid American hardwood.

1. FAHMIDA CHAIR
The Fahmida Chair celebrates contemporary design, the natural beauty of wood, and traditional joinery techniques that are a hallmark of all Thos. Moser furniture. It is the product of the first Emerging Designer Program by Thos. Moser, in collaboration with Dwell magazine and City Modern New York.

Fahmida Lam, a residential furniture and accessories designer from Brooklyn who graduated from Pratt Institute, was selected to take part in a week-long experiential apprenticeship with Thos. Moser Director of Design, Adam Rogers. The result was the prototype for chair you see here, which we have named Fahmida in reference to the designer and will launch to the public at Dwell on Design 2014.


The design of the Fahmida Chair is influenced by the Mid-Century Modern style, specifically, Danish Modern. Although admittedly inspired by the furniture born of the style, this piece - like any Thos. Moser piece or collection - has its own perspective and is a unique interpretation of its historical antecedents, through the lens of designer Fahmida Lam. Leveraging the strength and beauty of hand-finished American hardwoods such as cherry and walnut, the chair cuts a fresh, airy profile that naturally complements any thoughtful and clean aesthetic.

Just as the Shaker style served as an appropriate creative spark in classic Thos. Moser pieces, the Danish Modern aesthetic acts here as a vehicle, identified and chosen because of its compatible philosophies, such as; a foremost dedication to quality, a dedication to functionally driven objects, formal simplicity, the characteristic elimination of ornament, use and celebration of traditional materials, and an emphasis on craftsmanship. These characteristics are not only compatible, but exemplary of what the Thos. Moser brand has come to stand for, and this piece is yet another iteration of Thos. Moser quality.

"When we introduced the emerging designers program, my goal was to heighten respect for the craft of wood furniture; how it necessarily requires an understanding of and respect for the natural material, while allowing the craft itself to serve as a counterpart in the design process"
  - Adam Rogers, Thos. Moser director of design

Fahmida LamABOUT THE DESIGNER
In 2013, Pratt graduate and Brooklyn native, Fahmida Lam was invited to Thos. Moser to design and build a chair. Fahmida, an emerging residential furniture and accessories designer whose portfolio also includes lighting, home accessories and soft goods, worked closely with Adam Rogers, Director of Design and Product Development, and master craftsman Warren Shaw, to leverage the techniques, material and joinery of Moser to guide and express her design. The collaboration resulted in the decision to launch and include the Fahmida Chair in our product offerings for summer 2014.

2. ELEMENT DESK
The Element Desk embraces our fundamental philosophies, and demonstrates our passion for the strength and beauty inherent in solid hardwood, as well as the results that arise when the finest materials are handled with precision. The joinery of Element exemplifies this belief; each feathered miter joint is both a beautiful visual moment and a celebration of honest construction. Available in walnut (shown) or cherry as standards, it can also be made in most any other American hardwood of your choice.


The Element Desk is offered in three standard sizes (click to enlarge)

The Element Desk comes with a standard pull-out drawer, which can be customized with a power charging station that can be adapted to a variety of devices. The underside and legs of the Element Desk can also be customized wire management channels to hide those unsightly wires and cables. Please call us to discuss options.

5. CRESCENT HIGH STOOL
Simplicity — in both form and function — has long been a philosophy of Thos. Moser. And when simplicity manifests into something beautiful, we know we’ve hit our mark.

Tom Moser accepted the challenge to design a stool whose overall presence is understated, is simple in form, and is truly representative of all that is Moser - from the hallmark use of turned legs and stretchers made of ash to the visible and embraced joinery via wedged through-tenons joining the legs to the cherry or walnut seat.

The Crescent High Stool uses a minimum of finely tooled shapes to achieve its airy, graceful stature. Topped with a backless, steam-bent seat, this stool can be accessed from the front, back, or either side and it tucks neatly beneath a counter when not in use. Light weight and exceptional durability make this stool suitable for everyday use.



A Curved Perch
by Tom Moser

Until 500 years ago, most humans sat on the ground or a simple stump of some sort. Chairs, particularly those that elevate the sitter, were reserved for nobility. Even today, with the human race now some seven billion strong, many people lack much in the way of seating. American families, on the other hand, own numerous chairs — I venture to say upwards of 30 in the average household including car seats, bicycle seats, dining chairs, lounge chairs, outdoor seating and, especially in the modern era, kitchen stools.

Our latest contribution is the versatile Crescent High Stool, which we hope to add to your collection. The ash legs taper to a slender terminus, attached to the seat with our signature through tenon, and offer a color contrast to the darker cherry or walnut seat. The seat itself is steam bent to fit the curvature of the human derriere. The shape of the seat is derived from a stiff sling on a child’s swing, with a radius that is scaled to offer comfort to a broad population of sitters in the kitchen, den, studio, bar, billiard room — wherever an elevated perch is required.

At Thos. Moser, we subscribe to the notion that beauty is at the core of any object that performs its task to perfection. And the Crescent High Stool — an exercise in simplicity, minimalism and function — is living proof.
