Applied design


Myst. 1993. Rand Miller and Robyn Miller of Cyan Worlds

The Philip Johnson Architecture and Design Galleries
Applied Design showcases approximately 100 objects from the museum's collection. Representing the new directions in contemporary design, the exhibition features outstanding examples of interface and interaction design, dynamic visualisations, products, furniture, 3D printed chairs and bowls, emergency equipment, and biodesign. A testament to this vitality and diversity, the objects on display range from a mine detonator to a bowl made by transforming desert sand into glass using only the energy of the sun. Also on display are the first 14 video games to enter MoMA's collection as part of ongoing research on interaction design (for some insight on that subject, see
the Pac-Man article in DAMn°37). In MoMA, New York.
