So here’s Kanye and Jacques Herzog (of Herzog & de Meuron) talking on stage at the Moore Builiding in Miami’s Design District, during Design Miami, and who should Kanye bring up but our own Mr. Moss. “There was a guy, a bit of a rogue character, a bit of Kanye West himself in the furniture market…” says Kanye. Murray? A rogue character? The Kanye West of the furniture market? Well, maybe. We’re all going to think about this one.

No sooner is Bloss back from the exhausting trauma of Design Miami, than is we plunged into the exhausting trauma of Xmas. OMG. Bloss is beat. BUT, Harry Allen’s pigs to the rescue. What’s that catchy phrase, “You can ride a pig to market, but you can’t make him drink”? That doesn’t sound exactly right. Oh well. I already said, Bloss is tired. Anyway, catch the new Teal Chrome bank in the form of a pig over at Moss, the pig farm on Greene Street. Don’t like Teal? Are you nuts? Okay, okay, we also got Chrome Pink and Chrome Purple. Very butch. Oink.

Turns out writing on the booth walls by hand is more radical a move than one might suspect. It’s been causing a small ruckus.
We just thought it might be a nice change from endless and tasteful vinyl. Besides we kept thinking up new things to write as we were installing.
Who is this man? And why is he in all my photos taken from inside the Moss booth?
It’s not exactly a circus and it’s definitely not summer camp, but there are many many similarities to both. Load In Day at Design Miami. Seeing and hugging old friends, jockeying for leadership, rampant disdain, false jollity and fork lifts. These are just a few of Bloss’s favorite things. See that crate just on the other side of the truck? That’s ours. And look below, that’s Murray in the back of our big white booth. Isn’t it wonderfully sort of unborn and just waiting?

If you google Thanksgiving in Miami, this is one of the images that pops up. What were they going for, do you think. Is this meant to actually be appealing? To whom? Maybe we shouldn’t ask. However you could ask what Bloss was doing with such a google in the first place, and the reason is we are heading south, not only for that water skiing fowl but also for, yes, Design Miami! From whence live blogging will take place. Blow by blow. So to speak. Stay tuned, turkeys. All will be revealed.
