A name to remember
The launch of a new book about his life and work together with the sale at the gallery Piaza Paris (118, rue du Faubourg Saint -Honoré) on September 17th of more than a hundred objects and pieces of furniture from his private collection, have recently made the name of Peder Moos Danish –one of the first and best cabinet makers in the world– emerged from oblivion.
Iinitially destined to work on the family farm, Peder managed to study and specialise in the production of handmade home furnishings and became a pioneer and master of ergonomics. His name has become one of the greatest in joinery by the care and accuracy in all his work, as well as by being one of the pioneers in the creation of wood furniture.
Adopting certain characteristics of the art nouveau, his style is unique, simple, elegant and functional. His pieces of furniture are like sculptural pieces competing in sophistication and detail. Gallery Piaza Paris on September 17th is undoubtedly the best chance to get to know his work closely.
