during NYCxDESIGN, the MoMA design store launches a suite of products originally brought to life by kickstarter, marking the first time the crowd-funding website has partnered with a retailer. the series of objects includes 24 new products made by 20 international designers; from robots to wall hooks, toy cars to clocks, each conceptualized, funded and created with the community support of kickstarter. ‘we were inspired to pursue this project because so many of the most impressive, new and innovative products we have been finding lately kept leading us back to kickstarter,’ said emmanuel platt, the director of merchandising at the museum of modern art.


to further promote the launch of the collection, kickstarter is working on window installations for both the MoMA design store and the MoMA design store in SoHo.
