A special solo exhibition of the work of celebrated designer Hella Jongerius will be presented by Moss Bureau during Collective 2 Design Fair (May 8-11). Murray Moss and Franklin Getchell of Moss Bureau have curated a special solo exhibition of the work of Hella Jongerius.
For over twenty years, Dutch designer Hella Jongerius has worked in various ‘collectives’, whether they were composed of members of het small studio, or industrial collaborations, custom modeled to suit her never-ending exploration and investigation into combining industrial processes and hand crafts. According to Moss Bureau, Hella Jongerius has contributed more new paradigms to the lexicon of design than perhaps any other contemporary designer, her work in particular with Maharam, Vitra, Porzellan-Manufaktur Nymphenburg, and Royal Tichelaar Makkum invented new archetypes of exceptional quality and beauty.

Jongerius has been very important for Moss Bureay. According to Murray Moss, Jongerius has been “…a cornerstone of Moss. She was, and remains, an inspiration, a muse, and a friend.” She stitches together ideas, technologies and materials thought incompatible. She is truly an artist without borders.
