MoMA’s Open Call for NYC Designers

MoMA has put out an open call to designers based in New York City.

 While designers from all over the world can submit items year round, this is the first time the MoMA Store has specifically asked designers in New York City for American made products.

The MoMA Design Store is inviting local designers living and working in the city’s five boroughs to submit items for a product collection launching in 2013. Product categories will include, but are not limited to, paper (note cards, postcards, journals), home (tabletop, kitchen, home textiles, desk, gadgets/tools), kids’, games and toys, and personal accessories (bags, jewelry, scarves, wallets, pouches, and other small accessories), furniture (wall clocks, stools, lighting), and books.

In order for your submission to be considered, products must already be in, or close to, production, manufactured in the continental United States, and able to be delivered to MoMA in saleable condition. Visit for more information about the submission process. Deadline:  June 30, 2012.

Let me  know if you plan to submit, or if you’re item is chosen. I’d love to hear and blog about it!

Take your place among the elite—Eames, George Nelson, Castiglioni.

Your clock could hang here. Hey, you never know.

I love pretty much everything in the MoMA Store. (And the museum.)

The market could stand for more design-y kid toys, in my opinion.
