“Like any artifact of culture, design objects are often much more than the sum of their parts. Their forms and materials crystallize thought processes, tools, desires, and imagined futures, both near and far. Indeed, a group of design works that were added to MoMA’s collection in early June far transcend their materials—and in doing so, help us shape individual and collective perspectives on the changing world around us all.”
Paola Antonelli discusses recent additions to the museum’s design collection, from work inspired by ancient algorithms to design that explores new biological futures.
