Designing for The Museum of Modern Art (MoMA)

 

As part of a product design partnership, I designed several product concepts for the Museum of Modern Art Wholesale Store around the loose theme of travel.

Zero Gravity Shot Glass

 

Enjoy a drink as you float through space. The Zero Gravity Shot Glass hold liquids suspended in zero gravity through surface tension - it also works great in Earth's gravity. Designed to be prototyped on board the International Space Station's 3D printer and tested in zero gravity. Alluding to a future of commercial space travel, the Zero Gravity Shot Glass excites a future of zero gravity leisure and what will be. 

Materials: FDM 3D Printed Plastic (International Space Station) / Injection Moulded Plastic (Earth)

Size: 2 fl oz.
