Pop artist Roy Lichtenstein has collaborated with Barneys New York and the Art Production Fund to create a limited edition collection of home goods – many of which feature his telltale images from the 60s and 70s.

Items include trays, tableware, cups and even beach balls, all of which are currently being showcased in an oversized window display at Barneys. The display gives passersby unfamiliar with Lichtenstein a chance to appreciate his artwork and hopefully be drawn into the store as a result. Twenty-five percent of all purchases from the collection will go to the Art Production Fund, which encourages public art projects.

Check out the video below to see more products from the campaign.
