The Shop at Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum opened its first off-site retail location in Grand Central Terminal's the Graybar Passage on Friday.
This kiosk houses a selection of 25 design works from the museum’s shop, including decorative objects, jewelry, toys and office accessories.
It is designed using the USM Haller furniture system in orange, a 1963 design classic that is available for the first time in 30 years. A selection of the 13 most popular pieces from the USM Haller product line are available for Quick Ship including credenzas, shelving, tables, storage, nightstands. Prices range from $900 - $2500.
A curated selection of the Shop’s gift items is simultaneously being displayed in the Soho showroom at 28-30 Greene Street, including: brass candlesticks by designer Eva Zeisel; the 100 Series wristwatch inspired by the form of British industrial wall clocks; welcome soap by Tamanohada, a 116-year-old soap company in Tokyo in the form of a fish, which is often associated with good fortune; the Eton Solarlink FR600 radio, an emergency radio charged via hand crank or solar panel, which works where or when the grid fails to function; Brodman Blades Ping Pong Paddle Set, ergonomically designed with a paddle that is worn like a glove.
USM Haller was formally accepted into The Museum of Modern Arts (MoMA’s) Architecture and Design collection in 2001.
