MoMA Design steps in

There are many reasons to check out the recently opened GYRE shopping complex designed by famed Dutch architectural firm MVRDV in Omotesando: great cafes plus a couple of gallery spaces and some luxurious shopping destinations. But most importantly, the building contains the first international branch (the other three shops are all in New York), of the MoMA (Museum of Modern Art) Design Store. The store itself, a collaboration with Japan electronics maker Sanyo (they first collaborated on the shop's online store, which now includes a version for mobile devices), occupies more than 405 sq.-meters, and inside you'll find all the stylish goods — from home and personal accessories to a wide range of books and stationery — that you'd expect to find in a top select shop. Ready to tie the knot? The store also has a wedding gift registry for which soon-to-be newlyweds can sign up.
