If youâre interested in finding museum-quality design objects in a retail setting, head to Moss on Greene Street in New York City. Here, youâll find icons of twentieth-century design along with with the best of whatâs current. In the 10 years since it opened, this idiosyncratic brainchild of former fashionista Murray Moss has helped define the Soho design scene. Bridging decorative arts, industrial design and art, Moss models his displays after museum exhibits, showcasing each item with the date, designer and provenance, so even if you canât buy, you can learn. Major names in modern design, such as architect Gaetano Pesce, are always on display in revolving exhibits.
I love moss. Love, love, love. Great editing. Superb selection.
