Shop at Cooper-Hewitt Kiosk
Subverting the idea of the gift shop as merely an addendum to a museum, Cooper-Hewitt, National Design Museum is opening a temporary kiosk in Grand Central Terminal in New York.
Just in time for Christmas shopping, the store will sell 25 design works, including the Eton Solarlink FR600 radio, which is currently in the National Design Triennial at the museum. Not only will this raise awareness for the museum and its current exhibition, but also provide commuters with the opportunity to buy good design on the go.
Heightening the kiosk’s design credentials even further, the products will be displayed on USM Modular Furniture’s Haller system, designed in 1963.
