The Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) in New York City is a museum that celebrates modern art and its Design Store reflects this very well! Combining inspiration from both timeless artworks and contemporary design, it offers a great range of objects for different tastes. In other words: it’s a great source for finding nice presents! It’s more fun if you can visit the museum’s shop yourselves, but if travelling to New York is not possible, there’a always the option of shopping online!
Here are some cool gift ideas for any special (or not so special) occasion from the MoMA Design Store:
1. For the OCD friend who loves cooking as much he/she loves precision!
