This exciting new series focuses on the craftsmanship, innovations, and merits of contemporary global designers.

Collection Storage Milestone


As a component of Cooper-Hewitt’s renovation and expansion of  the Carnegie Mansion galleries, the Museum’s collection of 217,000 objects has been moved to an off-site facility, which includes collections storage areas, an objects conservation lab, and a photography studio. This past month, the staff of Cooper-Hewitt rounded another major milestone of this multi-year, multi-faceted project with the completion of the off-site move of approximately 700 objects from temporary space into permanent collection storage areas.
