Mark Moskovitz is an emerging designer of art furniture made of wood, like this sideboard resembling a wood pile.
The vision of a stockpile of wooden logs brings forth visions of fueling the fire and keeping warm by the hearth on cold winter’s night. The American artist translates this into ‘facecord’, a chest of drawers using the irregularities and haphazard geometry of cordwood, and the accidental poetry of its stacking to camouflage the storage furniture’s actual function.
The work is included in New York’s Museum of Arts & Design exhibition against the grain which features projects that examine the age-old medium of wood, and how it can be transformed into a contemporary object.
Mark Moskovitz will also be displaying at the Cranbrook Art Museum from May 12, 2017, to January 14, 2018 at exhibition: A New Domestic Landscape with several unique design pieces on display also from other artists.
