ARMOR | AMOR
As the collection title suggests, Armor Amor focuses on the theme of protection and vulnerability. Moffit’s latest works are inspired by his interest in Japanese armor, and appreciation for the nuance in this ancient craft tradition. Armor Amor feature new collectible contemporary designs, including limited and one-of-a-kind case-goods, tables, seating, and lighting, as well as a debut series of sculptural tabletop works in the form of bronze vessels. “It is an evolution from my last collection, further expanding an ongoing theme and source of inspiration for me, based on abstracting the art of samurai culture. I continue to be moved by juxtaposition, the austere and the delicate found in nature around my home and studio in Mt. Baldy, California. However, this collection also plays with more subtle details and softer shapes than my past work. In terms of materiality, I’m playing with glass and leather interventions as new surface materials”, Moffit states.
