The MoMA Design Store’s Latest Array of Chromatic Collectibles
These must-haves bring bursts of personality.By Ryan Waddoups January 29, 2019
Shadowy Chair by Torde Boontje
Handmade at workshops in Dakar, Senegal, the Shadowy Chair embodies the region’s creativity, innovative use of materials, and weaving–its vibrant polyethylene threads are normally used for finishing nets, and each pattern is one-of-a-kind.
Swirl Enamelware by Oyku Thurston Gurpinar and Basak Onay
Ever considered what “Burning Man in a bowl” might look like? Each piece in this tabletop collection, which encompasses mugs, bowls, and baking dishes, is produced in Turkey using traditional 15th-century marbling techniques. Hand-dipping and swirling help achieve psychedelic, sandy patterns that differ on every dish.
T.S.S. Luminaire by Juliette Mutzke-Felippelli
What would happen if late Brazilian architect Oscar Niemeyer and artist Olafur Eliasson exchanged ideas? Perhaps this modernism-inflected table lamp, in which a Plexigrass frame evokes Niemeyer’s famed Cathedral of Brasilia while a mouth-blown glass globe recalls Eliasson’s light installations.
RM58 Classic Chair by Roman Modzelewski
Here’s your chance to own a rare mid-century design relic from Eastern Europe! Handmade in Poland at a shipyard using boat production technologies, this polyester-glass laminate chair piqued Le Corbusier’s interest in the early 1960’s, but its production never materialized (until now, of course).
Bulbing Bankers Lamp by Nir Chehanowski
This birchwood luminaire takes protean to the next level. Composed of an acrylic sheet laser-engraved into a lampshade and covered in dozens of intricate incised lines, its 2D design appears 3D when illuminated.
Neon Side Table by Jaehyuk Yang
Evoking planes arranged in an H-shape, this acrylic side table’s three complementary colors create a subtly changing interplay of hue and light particularly striking in daylight-exposed rooms.
