Now more than ever, consumers appreciate that everything we live with—from tape dispensers to dish racks—can, and should be, well designed. The Museum of Modern Art has played a significant role in creating this awareness, through the establishment of its celebrated design collection in 1934 and its ongoing series of design exhibitions.
Our stores, gift catalog, and online store share this view, and we are pleased to offer a selection of products that span nearly a century. Some of the earliest products are enjoying huge renewed interest—proof of the enduring quality of good design—and some of the latest, perhaps with the help of the Internet, are finding appreciative audiences around the world within months of their introduction. While technology has provided new materials and methods of production, the concept remains the same—thoughtfully designed products improve our everyday lives.
In 1978, Kip Tindell (Chairman and CEO), Garrett Boone (Chairman Emeritus), and Architect John Mullen opened a retail store offering an exceptional and eclectic mix of products devoted to helping people simplify their lives. Today, with locations from coast to coast, our stores average 25,000 square feet and showcase more than 10,000 innovative products to help customers save space and, ultimately, save them time. The store layout is divided into lifestyle sections marked with brightly colored banners such as Closet, Kitchen, Office and Laundry.
