Li Edelkoort and Murray Moss
Li Edelkoort studied fashion and design at the School of Fine Arts in Arnhem, where she soon discovered her talent for sensing upcoming trends. In 2003 Time Magazine named her one of the world’s 25 Most Influential People in Fashion. Her recent work includes teaching at the Design Academy Eindhoven, conducting humanitarian outreach with the Heartwear foundation, and curating multiple design exhibitions around the world. In 1994 former fashion entrepreneur Murray Moss opened Moss in a former gallery space in SoHo, with a determination to transform the public perception of industrial product design. The New York Times called Moss “arguably the best design store in America” (2003), and the store quickly became internationally known for its product selection and presentation, with clients ranging from highly informed design professionals to celebrities and students.
Public programs are made possible, in part, by a major gift from Ann and Jerry Moss.
Additional support is provided by Bronya and Andrew Galef, Good Works Foundation and Laura Donnelley, an anonymous donor, and the Hammer Programs Committee.
