The MoMA Stores are known for unique gifts and killer design objects, but each holiday season we’re especially proud to see so many of the products we sell featured in a wide array of gift-giving guides. Below we’ve rounded up some of this year’s highlights, so you can see what items are garnering rave reviews—and get some tips for your own shopping.

On Tuesday, November 25, Marina Abramović will yet again be present at a MoMA-related event, but this time the occasion is an in-store signing at the MoMA Design Store, Soho. The artist has designed a limited-edition silk scarf (shown above) in collaboration with the fashion company Pineda Covalin, and she will be on hand to sign scarves and copies of her 2010 MoMA exhibition catalogue, Marina Abramović: The Artist Is Present.
The MoMA Stores have devoted our New York retail windows to feature a very special little product, a product “big enough” to be included in the Museum’s own design collection. The windows include larger than life-size objects that flicker, move, and spin through the technology of littleBits, tiny circuit boards with specific functions engineered to snap together with magnets.
From September 21 to 23, the MoMA Design Store in Soho is teaming up with Lomography to help you “Find Something You LoVE.” Lomography, creator of unique analogue cameras that have captured the imagination of people around the world, will have a photographer in the store to snap pictures of shoppers of all ages showing off their favorite products.
The magic of books is coming to life this fall at the MoMA Design Store in Soho. In celebration of our newly expanded children’s area, we are inviting families to meet and engage with authors whose works ignite the imaginations of young people around the world.
We recently travelled through Lisbon, Porto, and beyond to find products for our eighth Destination: Design collection, which introduces designers and design themes from around the world. This year’s collection—Destination: Portugal—highlights lifestyle products usually found only in Portugal, and the selection process was an exciting journey for us. We had a number of partners for the project, including Ministry of Culture, Portugal; TemaHome; Turismo de Portugal; aicep Portugal Global; and Fundação de Serralves, who helped introduce us to Portuguese designers, artisans, and manufacturers creating everything from umbrellas and filigree jewelry to furniture, teapots, weather predictors, and notebooks.
Every year since 1954, we have introduced a new line of holiday cards created by artists and designers from around the world. MoMA’s holiday card program was initiated by the Museum’s Junior Council affiliate group, which was founded five years earlier as a way to “bring together a group of younger people who have…a desire to see the [arts] fostered soundly and liberally.” (The Junior Council subsequently evolved into MoMA’s Contemporary Arts Council.)
