Fall Favorites from the MoMA Design Store
In anticipation of MoMA’s long-awaited reopening after a four-month renovation, we share highlights from the MoMA Design Store’s 2019 fall/winter catalog.THE EDITORS September 23, 2019
Brionvega Radiofonografo Radio & Turntable by Achille and Pier Giacomo Castiglioni
Sporting an unmistakably retro appearance and handcrafted Italian construction, this AM/FM radio and turntable is sure to delight audiophiles as well as connoisseurs of hi-fi’s golden age in the 1960s and ‘70s.
Raawii Strøm Collection by Nicholai Wiig Hansen
Hansen’s latest collection of sculptural ceramic vases, ideal for medium-sized flower arrangements, are handmade using Portuguese slip-cast techniques and channel Danish modernist artist Vilhelm Lundstrøm’s colorful still lifes. Choose from a vivid palette of vibrant orange, coral blush, green gables, yellow, vaporous gray, and blue.
Andy Warhol Sunset Triptych Skateboards
The Skateroom and the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts teamed up to create a limited-edition series of sustainable Canadian maple wood skateboards emblazoned with the late artist’s triple-screened sunset prints, originally commissioned for the landmark Minneapolis Hotel Marquette’s 1972 renovation.
Heng Balance Lamp by Zanwen Li
Hidden within the pleasingly minimalist Heng (Chinese for “balance”) Lamp’s gently curved wooden frame is an unexpected source of illumination: When the lower ball is lifted, it magnetically attracts to the top one, creating a connection that switches on the lamp’s LED.
These woven vinyl placemats, inspired by a collage created by Sandy Chilewich, feature boldly graphic color blocks that appear to be hand-sketched.
HAY Matin Lamps by Inga Sempé
This delicate brass-finished table lamp features a cantilevered steel frame that supports a parasol-like pleated cotton shade outfitted with dimmable LEDs, making it ideal for a desk or bedside table.
Aside from enlivening kitchens with playful primary colors, the Italian-made sauce pot, frying pan, and casserole pot’s dishwasher-safe aluminum also offers even heat distribution and a non-stick anti-scratch coating.
On Lines Table Light by Jean Nouvel
Jean Nouvel, architect of the 53W53 tower that will house three levels of MoMA gallery space, describes his geometric table lamp as “a simple and precise game of colored surfaces.” A series of dimmable chromatic methacrylate diffusers evoke an abstract painting, a city skyline, or any mood the user sees fit.
