Standing face to face with one of Jackson Pollock’s art pieces was a highlight for the Squidders in 2009 , Pollocks ritual paint dripped on a white canvas planted the seed for their colour changing inspiration.
It is a great fun to work with MoMA’s buying team. The lovely shop team beamed at the idea of selling the Bird Squit umbrella which changes colour when wet evenmore as the colours go well with the bright colour scheme of MoMA products.
When you have an aunt who buys all here Christmas presents from museum shops, that place is the cream of the crop, there are no gimmicks to be found but thoughtful interesting concepts, collector pieces of artists and product designers.
