PROCESS + MATERIALS
The table was made in Chicago. The form of the table was hand carved in maple. It was then cast in 93% recycled magnesium-aluminum alloy. The form was burnished and hand rubbed to patina. The top is composed of solid Wisconsin Black Walnut.
The GooseGuß ("goose-goose") table was designed and manufactured by Mozer for East in Hamburg, Germany.
"GOOSEGUß" - While working on the hotel the artist lived in the Gänsemarkt, the old Goose Market. This suggested the gooseneck form of the table... “Guss Metal” in German translates to “cast metal”. "Guss" sounds like "goose".
This 2018 variation on the original polished cast magnesium-aluminum table is composed of burnished and patinated cast magnesium-aluminum with a solid wood top.
Jordan Mozer + Associates, Ltd. adapted the ruins of an old iron foundry to create a boutique hotel and destination restaurant in Hamburg, Germany in 2004-5. In addition to acting as design architects, Mozer's team designed and fabricated architectural components, artwork and furnishings for the property. Most of the elements were informed by foundry forms and techniques as well as an interest in evoking in guests the surrealism of a Westerner in Asia for the first time.
