Charles Eames, Ray Eames. Prototype for Chaise Longue (La Chaise). 1948. Hard rubber foam, plastic, wood, and metal, 32 1/2 x 59 x 34 1/4" (82.5 x 149.8 x 87 cm). Gift of the designers

Join us as we discuss design objects—ranging from iconic mid-century chairs by Ray and Charles Eames, George Nelson’s classic clocks, and Alexander Girard’s textiles to humble garden rakes and salt and pepper shakers—and decide whether the concept of “good design” still holds up today.

This session is led by Petra Pankow.

Join us for lively conversations and engaging activities, facilitated by Museum educators, that offer insightful and unusual ways to engage with MoMA’s collection and special exhibitions.

Gallery Sessions are free for members and Museum admission ticket holders. No registration is required. Groups meet in the Marron Atrium, Floor 2.
