The Museum of Modern Art's Design store is gearing up to announce a new partner in Japan, where the company already has one store in Tokyo.
The aim is to open five new stores in the next few years with the focus being on Tokyo, according to MoMA Design's director of merchandising Emmanuel Plat, who declined to identify the Japan-based company. Concept shops are also being planned in a few of its existing stores, he said. While there are no immediate plans to open MoMA Design stores in the U.S., there is some consideration about launching concepts shops here and throughout the world, Plat said.
