About

We designed this sideboard or credenza entitled "Pieces" to be a very functional case piece that is constructed to the highest standards of furniture making seen in the 18th and 19th centuries resembling the work of the Gillow’s firm of Lancaster and London. We wanted the flat surfaces of the top and front of the doors, drawers, and legs to act as a single canvas on which over 250 pieces of highly figured and naturally colored custom cut 1/8" wood veneer that was applied as if like paint on a canvas using the orientation of the grain as brush strokes and the color of the wood as the paint on the artist’s pallet. The patterns of the applied woods represent the “Abstract Expressionism", "Abstract Illusionism", and "Cubism" fine art movements of the late 19th and 20th centuries. The color, grain characteristics, and shapes of the applied mosaic pieces were carefully chosen for their position within the composition to create a sense of tension and dynamics between the various elements in a manner similar to the paintings of Vassily Kandinsky, Fernanad Leger, and Piet Mondrian. The wood used in the construction of the piece is all “old stock” which we have saved for over 30 years of collecting or from collections of “old stock” which we have purchased ensuring that we are not promoting the cutting of any LIVE Trees in the production of our work. We also retain small cut-offs to reuse in the mosaic portions of our work. These practices coupled with our use of low and moderately low VOC coating and adhesives, FSC certified substrate materials with no or very low formaldehyde, and our electric is provided by photovoltaic cell panels are considered to follow LEED Gold, and Silver Certification Guidelines as well as Green Practices, and Best Practices. The finish is French Polish in the traditional manner requiring over 40 layers allowing for complete pore fill. There is over 450 man hours in the construction, decoration, and finishing of the piece. This piece is sold, but a custom credenza can be ordered that would be similar in construction, material usage, and artistic impression. Please contact us for further details and available production time.

About The Maker

Mosart, Inc.

Mosart, Inc.

View Profile
As a wooden artifacts conservator, lecturer, and furniture scholar treating and studying furniture throughout the world’s history for over 30 years; a new age of creativity and design inspiration has blossomed forth. Mosart’s designs and their material usage strive to combine the forms, decorative treatments, and hand joinery utilized by the great craftsman of the past with the LEED Building and Green Practices of the 21st century. The decoration and sculptural elements used in our furniture derive their inspiration from the art movements and artists of the late 19th and 20th centuries including “Abstract Expressionism”, “Abstract Illusionism” Cubism, Constructivism, and Neo-Plasticism. Mosart is striving to elevate furniture back to an art form while also designing and building furniture that employs the use of recycled, up-cycled, and LEED certified materials. The furniture produced by Mosart are individual titled works of art that employ many traditional decoration techniques including gilding, carving, inlaying, and mosaic work. The furniture often incorporates “old stock” exotic and domestic wood and wood from naturally downed trees in its production. In our furniture, we are essentially painting and sculpting with wood where the juxtaposition of elements, the color, variance in grain, and the refractive qualities of the wood are used as an artist uses paint from his pallet or sculptural elements to create a piece for functional fine art.
