The Museum of Modern Art has always been attuned to the close relationship between design and materials—and seeks to represent ways designers employ new materials and technology to improve an object’s function.

International Women’s Day is celebrated every year on March 8 and dates back to 1909 in New York City when suffragist and labor activist Theresa Serber Malkiel established an Annual Women’s Day. It’s a day of celebrating women’s achievements: social, economic, cultural and political. Here at MoMA Design Store, we celebrate art and design by women visionaries every day.
