What is Mosss?
Mosss is a site for aspiring designers or those who just love strong design and are hungry for inspiration. Mosss was borne out of a desire to provide exclusive access to the world’s top designers and architects, normally restricted to only those who can afford it. Through Mosss we provide unique, highly-curated online content in the form of short films that are well-supplemented with topical articles and images that support the films. We also offer design tools, through our RoomReader tool currently in beta (‘Shop and Image’ found at top right of our Mosss page), where we you can look at inspirational living rooms and we source the furniture items automatically detected (dots and boxes) in the image.
How long is the content?
Our films run about 1.5 hrs+ in length, total. However, we painstakingly edited, colored, sound-edited the content into short, digestible segments of 2-5 mins to provide a dense and highly-curated experience designed to educate and inspire. These video chapters fall along smart themes or ideas and allow you to go back and easily locate a favorite idea or image from a chapter, rather than search through an hour of video content. The chapters also help for easy viewing of content while on the move (commuting or waiting in line for coffee, for example).
What is the format of the Mosss Workshops?
Each Designer Workshop consist of 13+ short film chapters totalling 1.5+ hours of video. A single video chapter might contain one concept or design idea, or possibly one location (like home, office, client locale). In between most video chapters we provide supplemental written articles that help better understand the videos or offer something a bit more extensive on the subject. The written articles, in many cases, include unique image content in addition to the expertly-curated articles.
The Workshops are meant to be both educational and inspirational and are intended to inform your view of the world with the video content and written articles. Anyone in the field knows good design is very hard to come by and often comes with a very high price tag. Mosss aims to bring the very best in design and design thinking, from the world’s best designer/architects, directly to you for a fraction of what it would normally cost. We will continue to deliver the best designers to you through 2018 and beyond. We hope is that our Workshops feel like you get to “have coffee and chat with the worlds best” all from the comfort of your home.

What Does Mosss stand for?
Thanks for asking! Mosss stands for ‘Making of Smart, Simple Spaces,’ but we go by Mosss for short.
