MOSS was an internationally recognized, groundbreaking design retail operation for nearly twenty years. There were many attempts to break the code of our success but we guarded our secrets rigorously, as anyone who ever tried to take a photograph in the store, or even a note, quickly learned.
However, the experience gained from those years, as well as the validation or adaptation, of retail philosophy, policy and operational expertise is what underlies the retail oriented consulting services we offer now, which range from concept formation, to vendor and product sourcing, to display review and re-design.
One of the most remarked upon aspects of the Moss store was its display. We were intent upon delivering a narrative, where one piece would "speak to" another. Items were never displayed together based on function.
It was with an eye trained to maximize the potential of existing materials and pieces, and to provide expert and knowledgeable guidance as to what should be added, taken away or moved to a new position. Every wall is a canvas, every floor. Every lamp is a source. Nothing is wasted. Nothing is ignored.
