New York’s Museum of Modern Art is known for its extraordinary exhibitions and for presenting the world’s finest collection of modern and contemporary art. In 1932, MoMA was the first art museum to establish a curatorial department dedicated to Architecture & Design, and by mid-century, it was playing a leading role in defining and promoting the values of "Good Design."
As an extension of the Museum’s educational mission, the MoMA Design Store exemplifies good design with a well-edited selection of products highlighting the latest in materials, production, and design concepts from around the world. Shop MoMA Design Store locations and MoMAstore.org to discover innovative, fun, and functional gifts, personal accessories, and home items intended to improve everyday living. And reflect your modern style and celebrate life’s special occasions with unique and distinctive gifts from the MoMA Design Store Gift Registry.
All of the products you’ll find at the MoMA Stores are reviewed and approved by MoMA’s curators, some are represented in the Museum’s design collection, and many are MoMA exclusives.
Alexander Girard Double Heart Blanket
The multi-faceted artist, designer and architect Alexander Girard was one of the leading figures of postwar American design. His work exuded a sensuous playfulness that had been absent from the austere aesthetic of classic modernism.
The two-toned pattern of the Double Heart Blanket was originally conceived in 1971 as a printing motif for decorative wall panels, fabrics or pillows. In collaboration with the Girard family, Vitra is now producing this graphic design as a vibrant and sumptuous wool blanket. Made in a jacquard weave, a technique that highlights the constellations of vibrant and muted color tones.
