MoMA Design Stores

The MoMA Design Stores reinforce The Museum of Modern Art’s identity as the foremost platform for modern and contemporary design. 1100 developed unique solutions to the challenge of creating innovative displays of furniture, design objects, books, and accessories at two locations.

The architecture of the Midtown store meets the practical demands of the space by gently guiding the visitor on a logical path through the store and by presenting key merchandise in a functional and stylish manner. A “virtual mezzanine” encased in metal mesh provides extra storage and serves as a stage for product display. The mezzanine helps to create a sense of drama in the space and defines the double-height interior of the store.

The SoHo location achieves a contemporary retail environment within the bounds of a landmark building in a historic district. To that end, we used materials that speak to a modern sensibility, which in turn contrasted with the existing structure. A polyvinyl membrane was stretched across the ceiling of the space, along one wall of the ground floor, and down through the cellar floor in a continuous curve. Illuminated with a soft cool glow, this structure within-a-structure functions as a light box, emanating light from the inside out and revealing the interior to curious passersby.
