Digitized Design Collection

The expansive and comprehensive design collection of the Cooper Hewitt Smithsonian Design Museum, comprising of 220,000 objects, is now available online, following an extensive project of digitization of the collection. While the images of the objects, spanning three centuries are all protected by copyright, they now can be used for educational and research purposes. What I love about this online catalogue, is that the collection can be explored through such categories, as country of origin, period and publications to highlights, conservation and colors. Above: The Airline Chair by Kem Weber, 1935.
