The Cooper Hewitt Design Museum is Back and Better than Ever

On December 12th, the Cooper Hewitt Design Museum, housed in New York’s Carnegie Mansion, will open its doors to the public for the first time since starting renovations in 2008. Founded in 1896, it is the only museum in the United States completely dedicated to design, both historical and contemporary. To celebrate this long-awaited unveiling, Galison has worked with the Cooper Hewitt to design a line of design-savvy stationery featuring some of the most famous works from the museum. Emblazoned with the museum’s new branding, this collection is a must-have for any design enthusiast.

Each of the three Design Patterns Journals feature a different pattern from the Cooper Hewitt’s massive collection, including one from the Herman Miller fabric catalog.
