MoMA Exclusive: For this Shapes & Colors Throw, designer Osamu Mita was inspired by gachapon—Japanese vending-machine-dispensed capsules which contain randomly selected surprise toys. The throw features 15 different patterns placed inside circles that evoke the toy capsules. The patterns were created with a double-jacquard using two types of threads. The result is a partially raised texture with a 3D effect. Osamu Mita has work in MoMA’s collection and his designs were featured in the Museum’s 1998 exhibition Structure and Surface: Contemporary Japanese Textiles. This warm Mita Shapes & Colors Throw is made from 75% wool and 25% acrylic in Kiryu, Japan. It measures 75l x 43.5"w. Dry clean only.
