Mozer Morsels for the Home

For years, most fans of Chicago-based international artist/designer Jordan Mozer’s work could only enjoy his curvaceous chairs, sculptures, droplet-footed tables, and whimsical lamps by visiting the hotels, restaurants and entertainment spaces for which the pieces were commissioned. That just changed. Responding to customer interest, Mozer is making morsels of his vast collection—sculptures, lighting fixtures & furniture, available to the public. He’s got several groupings of the first flush of these items, and artwork on exhibit for purchase at three Chicago galleries and an auction-house now through May.

And for the collector, rare studio furnishings from the Mozer private collection will be available for auction at the Wright modern & contemporary design auction house, Thursday, March 26 at noon.

Mozer, Chicago-based since the launch of architecture and design firm Jordan Mozer & Associates, Ltd., 30 years ago, is one of few international designers who create project-specific narratives and then personally work in multiple mediums (sculpture, painting, lighting, textile & furniture design) to express that story in one-of-a-kind hotel, restaurant, retail, and entertainment environments. “It all starts with the story and proceeds from there,” says Mozer. “By making everything from scratch we ensure that every element of the project relates and supports the story we create, and, that it’s something you’ve never seen before. Ultimate escapism.” Supporting each dream-world locally, Mozer has cultivated a network of hundreds of Chicago craftsmen, artists, and small-scale manufacturers who each touch some element of every piece Mozer makes.
