Final Collection Of Michael Graves Design Collection For Target Arrives March 2012

Target and Michael Graves Design Group today announced the final installment of the Michael Graves Design ® Collection for Target. Arriving in stores in March 2012, this final collection of product marks the last year of the ground-breaking partnership between Target and Michael Graves.

The Michael Graves Design ® Collection for Target debuted in January 1999 and pioneered the movement to bring innovative design to all. Throughout the last 13 years, Target and Graves collaborated on more than 2,000 products, including the now famous Pop Art Toaster and Spinning Whistle Teakettle. In addition, the partnership spanned multiple architectural projects including the Washington Monument Restoration, the Elephant Fountain at St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital, and the Target Wing of the Minneapolis Institute of Arts. The final Michael Graves Design Collection for Target of kitchen gadgets, cleaning tools, and storage solutions will hit Target stores in March, and will be available in stores and online through Dec. 31, 2012 or until supplies last.

“Michael Graves was Target’s first and longest-standing design partner to date. Together we created an iconic product collection that expertly blended design with function,” said Stacia Andersen, senior vice president of home, merchandising, Target. “While this partnership is coming to end, Target remains dedicated to bringing our guests innovative design in new and meaningful ways.”

“Beginning in 1997 with the Washington Monument, Target has been a wonderful partner who has afforded me an opportunity to bring great design to America on a scale that was unimaginable before our partnership,” said Michael Graves. “I am very proud of the design work and its legacy, and I look forward to continued opportunities to design great products for American homes.”
