Movella Coat Rack Here, kiddie, kitty… it’s baby’s first landing strip. Designed by Ulrike Gattermeyer-Kapp and Manfred Kapp in 2004, this little coat rack is part wall art, pure function, and a piece of colorful interactive fun. Colorful peg hooks move around the kitty cat track to adjust to varying heights for hanging clothes and other items. Made in Germany of birch plywood. For ages 3 and up, $55.
Umbling Elephant Louise Haervig and Bolette Blaedel, 2005 It’s a seat. It’s a table. It’s a rocker. It’s bump-and-bruise resistant firm EVA foam. But above all, it’s a super cute stripey bit of elephant fun with enough style to launch a whole nursery design scheme. For ages 3 and up, $130.
Eames Elephant Miniature Charles and Ray Eames, 1945 While the price makes this more “objet” than “plaything”, this scale miniature version of the Eames plywood original is one way to start the mid-century modern fascination at the terrible-two’s. Only two prototypes of the Eames Elephant were ever created, so this is a great stocking stuffer for the slightly older design enthusiast, too. Developed by the Vitra Design Museum in Germany as part of their wildly successful meticulous miniature series. Made in the EU. $185 Sneak a peak at other items from the MoMA Store collection at AT: NY, AT: Home Tech, AT: The Kitchen, and AT: Green Home.
