Every surface of Andrew Carnegie's former library and study gleams—from the dark wood molding to the silver rims of the glass display cases. Redesigned by Gregory Krum, formerly of Moss, this two-room shop melds 1901 details like inspirational quotes emblazoned on the upper walls with contemporary bright green storage space. A refreshingly small promotional inventory complements the shop's driving concept, which is to offer cutting-edge tableware, glassware, office gadgetry, and jewelry by established and emerging designers. To this end, artists are commissioned each year to create an item (like bone china plates and vinyl Dunnys) for the Museum Souvenir series. Meanwhile, shelves upon shelves of books organized by genre line the walls: an extensive assortment of hard-to-find graphic design and architecture titles, and a smaller children's section.
