PROCESS + MATERIALS
In Chicago, hand carved wood sculptures were cast in 92% recycled magnesium-aluminum alloy, rough-ground and then burnished and welded. This chair includes a new Mozer Studios finish. After blasting and burnishing, Mozer Studios hand rubs an ebony wax to enrich the finish. Instead of brushing or polishing the foundry markings away, they are highlighted by the wax, embracing and celebrating the casting process.
Created for Paradise, an art collector's hotel in Seoul, Korea, in 2018. Mozer's designs for Paradise imagine an idealized seashore garden. This chair extrapolates upon seating created by Jordan Mozer + Associates, Ltd. for Américas in Houston, Texas...The seating is based upon idealized contemporary silhouettes clad in hoodies, skinny jeans, sneakers.
