... VOX Table If you are looking for the rst interior designer to make his mark on a local restaurant, you’ve found Joel Mozersky (joelmozersky.com). When Uchi opened in 2003, Mozersky’s red wallpaper in an outsize chinoiserie print became the restaurant’s signature, still powerful to this day. Mozersky was called in to give VOX Table, in just-opened Lamar Union, the same kind of oomph, which he did with a thoughtful melding of vintage pieces, knocko s and a knowing blend of grays. “We crafted the space to complement the food,” says architect Mark Olsen, project manager for Clayton & Little Architects (claytonandlittle.com). “We focused on artistic moments and elegant details.” Mozersky is the master of the elegant detail and captures nuances of French modernism in the Carrara marble tabletops and Jean Prouve-inspired indigo-and-white chairs— but especially in the exaggerated gray abstract pattern enriching the luminescent walls. e designer is always thinking outside the box—the proof is in his decision to use acoustic tile on the ceiling. e sound mu er is a boon to diners but aesthetically objectionable—unless you are an innovative pro and consider the noise-reducing integral weave attractive. “I usually hate it,” says Mozersky, “but the pattern looks organic, like a tiny version of the abstract on the wall.” voxtableaustin.com DINE IN STYLE Clockwise from top left: VOX Table features French smoke wood fl oors, Tryon downlights and banquettes upholstered in durable Kravet fabric; opaline globes by Austin-based Jeremy Earhart (jeremyearhart. com) brighten the private dining nook, and Jean Prouve-inspired chairs provide comfortable seating (you can fi nd the real ones at dwr.com); the bar countertops are Caesarstoneʼs London Grey, and the black vintage-style lighting is from bobointeriors.com. 114 INTERIORS SUMMER/FALL 2015 VOX TABLE PHOTOS BY LISA WOODS
