woven details at moma

by Grace Bonney

I love furniture with detailing that reminds me of weaving or lacing something up. For some reason it makes the furniture feel more alive and interactive, as if it’s inviting you to play with the lacing or tighten the stitches. These pieces at the MOMA store are part of their Destination: Mexico collection and incorporate rope, rattan and polyvinyl cord weaving techniques. I love the collapsible side table/stool below. I’d be tempted to play with that rope weaving like laces in a pair of tennis shoes. Click here to see more from Destination: Mexico at MOMA. xo, grace
