The inaugural set of the CITY BLOCKS coaster series. The name City Blocks: Manhattan references both the cartographic features of New York City and the geometric shape of the coasters. Manhattan’s iconic landmass and street grid are carved into four square Corian blocks. Aesthetically, the carved street grid creates a beautiful and subtle drop shadow. Functionally, the negative relief wicks away condensation from your glass. The City Blocks and Design Fugitives, in collaboration with Jacinda Ross, have been chosen by MoMA Design Store to be a part of Destination : NYC, the 11th location in the MoMA Design Store Destination: Design series.

Destination: NYC is the 11th location in the MoMA Design Store Destination: Design series and celebrates design in New York City.
• Destination: NYC is a product collection created by designers living and working in the five boroughs with all product manufactured in the United States.
• To assemble the product collection, the MoMA Design Store held its first Open Call allowing New York City designers to submit their work. More than 1,000 entries were received and reviewed by a design jury to culminate in a curated collection with the work of 75 designers.
• The Destination: NYC product collection will be available in MoMA Design Stores in New York City (11 West 53 Street, 44 West 53 Street, 81 Spring Street) and Tokyo and at MoMAstore.org, MoMAonlinestore.co.kr, andMoMAstore.jp beginning in May 2013 and running through August 2013.
