big fan of MoMA and it’s accompanying store – my go-to when perplexed over present procurement, i was pleased to receive a physical catalog (although mostly i cancel those immediately. paper = wasteful; internet4lyfe). on first glance, the holiday card boxes feel premature; it’s august. the sun has finally revealed herself. i just broke a sweat this week: a deep and intense bikram sweat, but it took until now – let me enjoy summertime, mmkmoma?
but 4 products made the entire tree hating non christmas time experience delightful:
a sucker for conventional shapes in non-traditional materials, i love the see through creamer. this $14 glassware probably makes brides-to-be beg for a MoMA registry. move over procelain cows – modernism arrived.
wood. metal. sharp. brilliant. clever. clean. sanitary. japan can do no wrong in my eyes – everything coming out of that country is beautiful.
a 2-in-1 gadget is a special thing + this student-design-competition-winner knows that. her platter has built in coasters + the cups have spoon rests. thank you functionality, for showing up in beautiful design. despite being labeled espresso set, gelato would be brill here too.
again, utilitarian elegance. in new york city, where murphy beds are commonplace – who wouldn’t like a double duty drinking glass? that’s what i thought.
