MoMA Design Store Resurrects Hellerware Rainbow Dinnerware
After John Edelman bought Heller last year, the company announced plans to bring back the iconic 1960s stackable Hellerware in white. The Vignelli-designed melamine dinnerware was originally manufactured in Italy in 1964, and then later in the United States by Alan Heller. Currently, the white Hellerware collection is available for pre-order on Heller’s site. The Hellerware rainbow colorway, however, has been in and out of production since the early aughts, but now the MoMA Design Store is bringing the legendary collection back in six vibrant colors. Starting today, they’re available in 6-piece sets, one of each color, of either dinner plates, salad plates, soup bowls, or mugs, for $60, via online or in-store.
The Heller Rainbow Dinnerware collection launches today exclusively from the MoMA Design Store. Visit store.moma.org for more information.
