Toast It Coasters
For use as coasters and trivets, playful toast-shaped cork comes packaged like a loaf of sliced multigrain bread. The Toast It Coasters come from the exuberant vision of Patricia Naves, an architect and designer whose work infuses her Brazilian roots with an interest in Scandinavian design. Naves was one of the many designers featured in Destination: Brazil, a curator-approved, MoMA-exclusive collection highlighting contemporary design products from Brazil. Destination: Brazil was an extension of Destination: Design, the Museum's educational mission that introduces customers to innovative design concepts and production methods from around the world.

Scandinavian design became a major international influence in the mid twentieth century as it blended a strong history of hand craftsmanship, unpretentious form, and utilitarianism with the tenets of the modern movement. Favoring organic shapes and natural elements, new designers continue to carry on the tradition with light, user-friendly furniture and products.
