Sawdust in the Veins: David Moser Talks Design

JAN07 David lrRGB resized 600Andrea Campbell, the National Home and Living Examiner, recently caught up with David to get his take on being a member of the Moser clan and to find out how Thos. Moser’s designs have morphed since the early days over 39 years ago, when Tom launched the company with his Shaker-inspired furniture.
As David pointed out in the lively Q&A, he’s been in the family business, so to speak, since he was eight years old and he admits to having sawdust in his veins! That leaves a lot of well-traveled territory to cover: what was our favorite question asked by the designer-cum-interiors authority?

Q.: The design style has morphed quite a bit since the early Shaker style pieces, No?
D.: The great thing about learning is that once knowledge is acquired new horizons emerge and for creatively motivated people the desire to apply new knowledge and skill is ever present. In short, if individuals don’t grow they must by definition be in a state of decay. I for one would rather push our comfort zone of design identity and perpetual state of growth and challenge.

Embracing new horizons is one of our most prized philosophies at Thos. Moser and it is evident in the enthusiasm with which David approaches his contemporary take on traditional craftsmanship. Bridging the gap between the two is what we feel we do so well. Our deepest thanks to Andrea for bringing David’s convictions to the fore. If you’re itching to find out what project is captivating his attention at the moment, stop by Andrea’s page and take a peek! Are you following us on Twitter or “liked” our Facebook page?
