We love free shit, because who doesn’t? What we love even more is visually appealing free shit, and this could be the motherlode. Cooper Hewitt, also known as the Smithsonian Design Museum, has quietly been digitising their collection, giving you virtual access to over 200,000 items from across a period of 3,000 years.
Better leave a trail of breadcrumbs, you’ll get lost in here forever.
Need some design inspiration? Shuffle through almost every single item in the Cooper Hewitt collection, now available online for free.
More and more archivists seem to be jumping on the online trend lately, with the Guggenheim recently releasing over 200 of their modern art catalogues into the web.
So jump on through to the Cooper Hewitt collection, where you can search by name, year, even colour. Check out some of the items below.
In case you hadn’t noticed, I really like posters. This is just the tip of the iceberg – view the entire collection here.
