Argentine (Eco) Design at the New York MoMA


The New York Museum of Moder Art (MoMA) store is holding its first Argentinean Design exhibition, and we’re thrilled to see some green included. The presentation is called Destination: Buenos Aires, New Argentine Design, and is a selection for which the MoMA teemed up with the Buenos Aires Museum of Latin American Art, one of the coolest design stores that sells eco design in the city. It will last until April and includes bonded leather accessories by our featured Vacavaliente, an adorable natural clay salt and pepper set by Lola Goldstein, a collection of Patagonian porcelain recipients that resemble disposable plastic ones (great chance to switch to reusable) by Leo Battistelli, lovely fabric-monster-toys by Sopa de Principe (we believe these are from recycled fabrics, but even if they aren’t, this kind of toys are way better than plastic ones with hundreds of parts), and clever wood and non toxic lacquer toys by Laboratori. To see the complete designers list (including the non-green ones), visit the Malba website (in Spanish). To find the items, step by the Museum shop. ::MoMA Store ::Malba
