Knoll: Interactive Archive

I partnered with modern design icon Knoll to develop The Archive, an interactive timeline of the company’s history, which launched in October 2018. I curated, researched, and wrote new timeline entries spanning over 100 years of design history, and uncovered the many personal and professional connections linking the design luminaries and institutions that shaped Knoll's history. The new Archive also incorporates the history of KnollTextiles, and spotlights the many contributions of women designers. Data visualization produced in conjunction with Schema Design.

Please note the Archive is best experienced on a desktop or tablet.

Entries can be explored in three views: as a chronological timeline, in a regular grid, or as a constellation that shows the many personal and professional connections linking Knoll with many interwar and postwar design luminaries. The 400+ entries can also be sorted by themes and tags, and a particular entry can be set as a filter to view related content.

The Museum of Modern Art: Curatorial Projects

I've organized and assisted with over a dozen architecture and design exhibitions at MoMA, including How Should We Live? Propositions for the Modern InteriorMaking Music Modern: Design for Ear and EyeDesigning Modern Women 1890–1980Latin America in Construction: Architecture 1955–1980From the Collection: 1960–1969, and Massimo Vignelli: The Subway and the City.  

During my time at MoMA, I also facilitated the acquisition of numerous iconic works for the collection, including a 1957 Fender Stratocaster, a student bedroom suite designed by Charlotte Perriand, and a large scale recent work by Sheila Hicks.

Uniqlo: Curating, Product Development, Writing

From 2014–2017, I worked with Uniqlo to develop its SPRZNY line, apparel and accessories inspired by MoMA's unparalleled collection of modern and contemporary art, sold at Uniqlo stores worldwide. I curated a dynamic range of MoMA artists and artworks for Uniqlo's designers to riff on, approved all final apparel designs, and wrote product and promotional copy. 

My SPRZ collections highlighting masters of graphic design at MoMA include Experimental Jet Set, Paula Scher, and Massimo Vignelli.
