Always one to be ahead of the times, the MoMA (Museum of Modern Art) Design Store will be selling a collection of curated Kickstarter projects as part of the upcoming NYC x Design event collective starting this month. If you’ve had a hard time finding a successfully Kickstarted project post-launch and will be in the NYC area for the month of May, this is your opportunity to jump in and grab those products. Here’s a rundown of the MoMA-curated Kickstarter collection that will be available both at the MoMA Store itself as well as the SoHo MoMA store.

“We were inspired to pursue this project because so many of the most impressive, new and innovative products we have been finding lately kept leading us back to Kickstarter…It became clear that Kickstarter is an important new way for Good Design to come into being, and we wanted to celebrate that.”

-Emmanuel Platt, MoMA Director of Merchandising
