MoMA's brilliance lies in collecting the most amazing ordinary things. Chairs that changed the world. Beautiful teapots. And their Design Store lets you take these specimens home—we checked out the newest acquisitions, and here are the best.
These Braun analog alarm clocks aren't new—they're a reissue of a gorgeous older design. What is new is their voice-control options—just say OFF to snooze, which is probably what you involuntarily shout at your alarm clock anyway. $42
We already showed you some reissue Braun watches with pretty digital faces, but if you want something more retro (and still gut-punchingly chic), these analog reissues are wunderbar. $150
This table is made out of cardboard. This table costs $1500. This table is designed by Frank Gehry. When read together, none of these sentences should be surprising.
Sure, this is just a pretty necklace. But it's made out of reflective microbeads, which create a dazzling halo of light around your neck when you're hit with a picture. Think of it as both an IRL Instagram effect and a paparazzi shield.
Humidifiers are ugly and stupid looking. This one isn't! It's also $1800, but looks quite pretty, doubles as a gentle nightlight, and has a smooth reservoir that l lifts straight out of the top.
Headphone splitters are easy to lose because they're tiny, and utterly forgettable as objects. The $10 Branch splitter not only has three outputs but looks very nice. A must for any long bus ride you don't want ending in a passenger homicide when people tire of your playlist. [MoMA Design Store]
