For the next year, the architecture and design floor at the Museum of Modern Art New York is showcasing design specifically by women. “Designing Modern Women 1890 – 1990” seeks to showcase the role of women as designers and influencers over that century. Furniture and graphic design are the focus of the installation, including work by Charlotte Perriand with Le Corbusier, Eileen Gray, Grete Jalk and more.

As the museum describes the exhibit:

Modern design of the twentieth century was profoundly shaped and enhanced by the creativity of women---as muses of modernity and shapers of new ways of living, and as designers, patrons, performers and educators. This installation, drawn entirely from MoMA's collection, celebrates the diversity and vitality of individual artists’ engagement in the modern world, from Loïe Fuller’s pulsating turn-of-the-century performances to April Greiman's 1980s computer-generated graphics, at the vanguard of early digital design.

Check out a few of the pieces above and get more information on the MoMA website.
