Yogi Berra once noted that cash is almost as good as money. I’m not in the market for a new wallet to keep my cash in, but if I were, I’d be interested in these two sold at MOMA, both designed by Hester van Eeghen.
The Window Wallet (above) has a Mondrian vibe. It sells for $165 ($148.50 for members). I would definitely want to pass on this one:
UPDATED TO ADD: I was sitting in my photographer’s studio a few days after posting this and showing him his photos on this blog when he spotted the envelope wallet. “I have that right here,” he said, and sure enough it was the same thing. He said someone gave it to him at a design show. It was pretty paper-y, I must say. It’s more of a cute stocking stuffer than a real wallet that could withstand everyday use.
