Tobias Wong's Ballistic Rose at MoMA
by Harry / November 19, 2008

CITIZEN:Citizen has added another object from their growing design-art collection to the permanent collection of The Museum of Modern Art in New York. The Ballistic Rose, created and designed by Tobias Wong, is a bullet proof corsage, "a handmade ribbon rose constructed from a single strip of ballistic nylon. This floral hybrid protects your heart in an uncertain world. Wong's bloom is both a high-tech talisman for the tender-hearted and wry fashion statement.". Good timing, we could all use a little protection right now.

In fact Philip Wood, the owner of CITIZEN:Citizen, would like to add the Ballistic Rose to your permanent collection. CITIZEN:Citizen's website just underwent a major overhaul, and to mark the event one creative MoCo Loco reader will add a Ballistic Rose to his or her collection by writing a clever, uncertain-times appropriate "quote" for the Rose's CITIZEN:Citizen page. Leave your quote in the comments section here and next Wednesday Philip Wood will choose the winning quote. Enter as often as you want.

The winner will get the now classic Ballistic Rose with certificate of provenance and archival collectors box shipped to their door and their winning quote up on the CITIZEN:Citizen website.

UPDATE: comments are now closed, later today (November 27) we will announce the winner of the Ballistic Rose.
