The Apprentice: A City Modern Preview

Read Article
Dwell and New York magazines’ second annual City Modern is kicking off in just a little over a week and we’re already looking forward to the home tours and panels featuring some of New York’s great design minds. This year, one of those panels will include young designers just beginning their careers. Chosen to take part in a week-long apprenticeship with Thos. Moser designer Adam Rogers, emerging furniture designers Willy Chan and Fahmida Lam will take part in a discussion about their experience learning the techniques and philosophies that have defined the time-honored Moser aesthetic for 40 years.
