Apr 15, 2024

On the evening of April 10, 2024, the Adorn Restaurant at the Four Seasons Hotel Chicago was abuzz with excitement and creativity as it played host to a grand launch party like no other. Bringing together a constellation of talent and passion, the event marked the unveiling of Molosco, an artware pop-up shop and a captivating collection of dinnerware designed by the visionary artist and University of Chicago Professor, Laura Letinsky. All art works at the pop-up shop are curated by Shashi Caudill Photography and Fine Arts.

Named after the humble yet resilient mollusk, Molosco is more than just a set of plates, bowls, and cups—it's a testament to adaptability and versatility, much like its namesake. Each piece in the collection is meticulously crafted to balance form and function, inviting users to experience the tactile and sensory pleasures of everyday dining in a whole new light.

The launch party was a feast for the senses, with Chef Richie Farina serving up delectable creations on Molosco dinnerware, transforming each dish into a work of art in its own right. As guests mingled and savored the culinary delights, the sounds of Chicago's own DJ Blesstonio provided the perfect backdrop, setting the stage for an unforgettable evening.

But Molosco isn't just about aesthetics—it's about fostering connections and sparking creativity. That's why the pop-up shop at the Four Seasons Hotel will continue to showcase both the exquisite artwork of Laura Letinsky and the versatile Molosco dinnerware until late summer of 2024. It's a hidden gem waiting to be discovered by art enthusiasts and culinary connoisseurs alike, inviting them to explore the intersection of art, design, and hospitality.

Looking ahead, Molosco has ambitious plans to collaborate with individuals from the culinary, art, and design worlds, creating unique experiences and gatherings that celebrate craftsmanship and creativity. With Chef Richie already planning a full tasting menu featuring Molosco dinnerware, the future of Molosco is filled with excitement and rich in flavors.
