‘facecord’ hidden log drawer by mark moskovitz

 

 
the vision of a stockpile of wooden logs, brings forth visions of fueling the fire and keeping warm by the hearth on cold winter’s night.
american artist mark moskovitz translates this into ‘facecord’, a chest of drawers using the irregularities and haphazard geometry of cordwood,
and the accidental poetry of its stacking to camouflage the storage furniture’s actual function. the work is included in new york’s museum of arts & design
exhibition against the grain which features projects that examine the age-old medium of wood, and how it can be transformed into
a contemporary object.
