As designers so much of our time is spent thinking of ingenious ways to treat surfaces. Surfaces such as walls, ceiling, flooring and even surfaces of our furniture. After all these years of practicing interior design I do have the confidence to question the fundamentals such as why are windows always rectangular and not round or oval? Why are walls always straight and not at an angle? Why are surfaces always straight and not undulated? I hope I can experiment with surfaces someday but first I will need to find a client who is willing to be adventurous!!!
I am always excited to learn about a new material to dress up a surface and if they are environmentally conscious even better! I discovered this company called Moz during my trip to New York.
Moz was founded in 1989 by two brothers who designed and built modern metal furniture in a San Francisco bay area garage and has now evolved in many ways over the past two and a half decades. Today we are talking about their designer Metal laminates and products such as Column Covers, Wall panels and others. The raw materials used for manufacturing of Moz products are domestically sourced metals. They have an extremely long lasting installed lifespan and can be recycled once their useful life in the applied environment has come to an end. Moz Aluminium products contributes to Leed Credits for recycled content.
In 2012 Moz installed an impressive on-site Solar System to power their offices and manufacturing facilities and now boasts sufficient electrical power generation to supply their own power as well as contributing power back to the utilities grid. All Moz products are proudly made in the U.S.A. from start to finish.
