Moss Donates To Museums

This week, Moss announced that they will be-

"As part of our ongoing efforts to (advance the cause) expand awareness and understanding in contemporary art and design, Moss has been engaged in a dialogue with museum professionals and their patrons to place works of exceptional quality in Museum collections. This thereby allows public access to important art and design, gives the artists a foundation for future projects, places contemporary objects in an art historical context and increases the visibility and viability of contemporary art and design vis-a-vis museum acquisitions."

Moss is donating significant furniture and art pieces to museums, such as the Art Institute of Chicago, San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, and Philadelphia Museum of Art. Some of the pieces being donated are from the designers and artists Maarten Baas, Hella Jongerius, and Fernando & Humberto Campana.

If you have never been to Moss in NYC, you MUST go! The showroom is incredible and hosts the most amazing design pieces and shows. Every time I go there, I get a little teary eyed by how beautiful everything is. Murray Moss is a genius. He has done so much for the design world and for designers.
