Design for Life: Our Daily Lives, the Spaces We Shape, and the Ways We Communicate, As Seen Through the Collections of the Cooper Hewitt National Design Museum
The National Design Museum in New York is one of the largest repositories of design in the world, with a collection of nearly a quarter of a million objects such as typewriters, tea pots, architectural renderings, lace, wallpaper sample books and posters. This celebration of the Museum's 100th anniversary, draws on its experience of a century of collecting, documenting and studying design. It also displays thousands of the Museum's most prized exhibits. The collection is divided into four curatorial areas: applied arts and industrial design, textiles, wall coverings and drawings and prints, each overseen by a curatorial team responsible for its care, documentation and interpretation. Each section is accompanied by explanatory notes from the Museum's curatorial team.
