For their museum shops, MoMA identifies particular design objects that epitomizes an important movement, collection, or designer rather than creating a complete catalogue of every item of a movement, collection, or artist. We are proud that this year, they have chosen two of our product to launch in their shops; the Patio Highback and Guidelight.
In 1932, The Museum of Modern Art established the world’s first curatorial department devoted to architecture and design. MoMA has long recognized design’s important role in our culture alongside more traditional mediums like painting and sculpture. MoMA identifyies a particular design object that epitomizes an important movement, collection, or designer rather than creating a complete catalog of every item of a movement, collection, or artist.
Each added product to the MoMA Design Store requires a set of 8 criteria that they use to ensure every item is a good fit with their vision of good design. Next, each proposed product is evaluated by MoMA’s curatorial department. Only those items that make it through these two steps successfully can become part of the assortment. And recently we are proud to announce that two of our products have been selected to represent Weltevree in New York.
Every purchase made at MoMA will support one of MoMA’s educational programs. Every year, they engage with over one million people through their programming in the Museum, in all five of New York City’s boroughs, and around the world.
