Words

The Delta Vase, designed in 1981 and having won numerous awards, is an interesting vessel comprised of three pieces of glass adhered to one another with silicone. It is a break from the vase as blown glass and is a beautiful, primitive form with a home in MoMA's permanent collection.

Words

The Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum Shop is a great place to waste some time, not just looking at exorbitantly priced artifacts, but also affordable pieces of classic design. These would make great gifts for someone who appreciates timeless items but might not normally buy them for themselves.

—01. Washi paper.

Words

These Siwa totes, which are made out of a unique paper/recycled plastic material called Naoron, are waterproof and take on a beautiful leather-like character with age. They are a great alternative to cloth totes and have a simple, minimalist aesthetic.
