Design for Life

Design for Life

by Dianne H . Pilgrim (Author)


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.
