Best of MoMA

January 25, 2018

We're delighted to see our very own Geo Mini go into the iconic MoMA Design Store in New York. There's no shortage of exciting and inspiring design within their collection, but here we pick a handful of our favourites:

1. Aino Aalto Tumblers:
These pressed glass tumblers were designed by Aino Aalto (wife of architect Alvar) in 1932 and have been in more-or-less continuous production ever since. Often copied, but never bettered, we love the playful colour palette and simple but striking design.

 
2. Yayoi Kusama Pumpkins:
Yayoi Kusama began incorporating pumpkins in her work as far back as the 1950s, some say after eating them to the point of nausea in her youth. Sculpted, spotty pumpkins formed the centrepiece of her 1993 Venice Biennale exhibit, but we think there's a space on every bookshelf for one of these delightful resin miniatures.



3. Gerrit Rietveld Chair:
Seen most often in red and blue, we love this variation on Gerrit Rietveld's classic chair design. First prototyped in 1918 it wouldn't feel out of place as the centre piece of any modern living room.

4. Arne Jacobsen Cutlery:
We love the simple curves and geometry of Arne Jacobsen's cutlery. What better way to impress dinner guests if, like us, you're not confident in your cooking skills?

5. Paulin Geo Mini:
There are hundreds of items that could have made this list, but we couldn't omit our own contribution could we? The Geo Mini features our bespoke Geo typeface and is available with a choice of high quality, whole grain Italian leather straps.
