Beauty - Cooper Hewitt Design Triennial Part 2

We are back at the gorgeous Cooper Hewitt museum, and Part 2 of the amazing Beauty exhibition. This was such a fantastic exhibit, and I would really try to see it before it closes on August 21, 2016. 

I just LOVED these from The Haas Brothers! So fun and colorful! 

A very cool and new feature is The Pen which you receive with your admission ticket. Here is some information from the museum's website about it and how it makes the Cooper Hewitt experience even better than before! 


The new interactive Pen further enhances the your experience by letting you “collect” and “save” objects from around the galleries. Carry it in your hand tethered with a convenient wrist strap—it is always ready when you need it.

You receive your Pen with your admission ticket which contains a dedicated web address corresponding to your visit. To collect objects, simply press the flat end of the Pen to any museum label. Transfer your collections to the interactive tables to explore them in more detail or add more objects. At home or on your mobile device visit Cooper Hewitt Website and enter the code printed on your ticket—everything you collected and created will be waiting for you! Come back to the museum and keep building your collection, or share it with your friends.

Find out the full story behind the realization of the Pen and how it works.

This was really cool to see up close, tricky to wear, I would imagine! 
I really loved this and walking under it was very, very cool! 

The architecture of this building is just mind-blowing! 
The gorgeous outside of the building, such a treat to sit in the garden with a cup of tea or coffee, and just relax in this very busy city!
