This past Saturday, Chicago designer Jordan Mozer, whose local work includes everything from Vivere to Cheesecake Factory to Wow Bow in Water Tower Place, opened an exhibition of recent hand-sculpted cast furniture at the Casati Gallery at 949 West Fulton.
Mozer describes the work as follows:
"Last year we transformed a mossy and crumbling old iron foundry in Hamburg, Germany into a boutique hotel called East.
The design was inspired by the ghosts of the old iron foundry and an appreciation for the Eastern recognition of a spiritual essence in nature, and also by an urge to create a dreamlike and idiosyncratic personality with both the space and objects within. As always, we created project-specific furnishings from scratch."
