PROJECT

Using The Metropolitan Museum of Art’s expansive collection to create sales-driving product for home, accessories and textile divisions. Our challenge was to increase the quality and sophistication level of the product while maintaining and growing our customer base of museum visitors.

ROLES

Design Direction

Product Management

Buying / Merchandising

There were many drawings on display for the exhibition Michelangelo: Draftsman and Designer—we chose the most well known images to create beautiful textiles and accessories. Sourcing from Italy enhanced the look and feel of the product. Our color palette was a range of neutrals which enhanced the richness and nuance of the concept and the exhibition shop.

EXHIBITION: MICHELANGELO - DIVINE DRAFTSMAN & DESIGNER

For the exhibition Visitors to Versailles, the artwork for the exhibition was somewhat dark and muted. Our challenge was to create more consumer-friendly product that evoked traditional conceptions of Versailles while using the source artwork to accurately tie back to the exhibition. Colors for the delivery were spring floral tones to keep the look and feel light and bright.

EXHIBITION: VISITORS TO VERSAILLES (1682 - 1789) 

The Egyptian Wing of the Metropolitan Museum is vast and we chose the beautiful material called Faience as our foundation. Faience is a quartz / ceramic used on some of the most iconic pieces of Egyptian Art that the museum possesses.  We used layers of blue for the palette and focused on the museum mascot “William” the Hippo as a main subject for our collection.

THEME: EGYPTIAN FAIENCE
