Element Collection designed by Adam Rogers
Moser Contract introduced the Element Collection at Neocon 2013. The Element Desk and Credenza earned a silver award for Case Goods at the Contract Magazine Best of Neocon Awards, and can be seen at NeoCon East, Baltimore Convention Center, October 16th & 17th.
Designed by Adam Rogers, Element honors classic Thos. Moser principals of good design. The Moser devotion to modern design and quality craftsmanship including clean simple lines, discreet integration of functional components, utilization of traditional joinery techniques, and bringing out the essence of the wood, were core to Rogers’ approach.
“Relying on the basic elements of design such as point, line, and plane provide a foundation for the approach to these designs,” said Rogers. “My objective is to amplify subtlety, while celebrating the beauty of natural materials. Each piece must respect the honesty of the making process.”
The Element Collection is currently comprised of a desk/table, credenza/filing cabinet, coffee table, hall table, and bench. The award-winning credenza incorporates a fascia of solid surface material made of 100% post-consumer recycled paper. The Element Credenza may be specified as a free-standing credenza, filing cabinet, or return – attached to the table/desk.
The Element Desk/Table offers an elegant solution to wire management and power needs. The hidden front drawer easily slides forward to reveal cleverly concealed power and data ports integrated into the keyboard tray. A collapsible drawer front creates an ergonomic keyboard tray and a caddy, designed to comfortably hold mobile devices, is nested on the right side of the drawer. A hollowed track run, creating a virtually invisible wire chase on the back right desk leg, hides power cords from view. This multifunctional, elegantly styled piece is at home in virtually any workspace.
