The New York supreme design store Moss has just opened a second store in Los Angeles. 3500 square feet of cool optic white space bifurcated by a ten ton steel beam running straight from the door to the sales station. The “Moss Angeles” store is situated at Melrose Avenue near the mouth of Melrose Place with prominent neighbors like Paul Smith Big Pink, the Pacific Design Center Blue Whale, Marc Jacobs and APC.
The star of the show in LA for now is a fire-sculpted by Dutch designer Maarten Baas. The piano is part of Baas’ Where There’s Smoke collection for Moss (seen above). You will also find rational design from the sixties represented by the 606 shelving system by Dieter Rahms mixed with design-art from designers like Studio Job, Campana brothers and Tord Boontje.
