Design world's best new blog: Object of the Day

1963-39-45

So wrote David Colman in yesterday's New York Times.

More: "Culled, researched, written and produced by the curators of the Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum, Object of the Day is curation in all its glory. In the last few weeks, entries ranged from a Saul Bass movie poster, a 14th-century polka-dot silk-velvet fabric, modern Braille wallpaper and even Pinterest itself."

"Object of the Day is the brainchild of the Cooper-Hewitt's acting director, Caroline Baumann, who has such enthusiasm for so many forms of design ingenuity, as well as the icebergian riches of the museum's vast holdings (most of which go unseen), that the blog was one way to bring more of it into the light of day."

"'It was something I had been wanting to do for years and years, so I am thrilled,' Ms. Baumann said. 'We have 25 centuries in our collection here.'"

Fair warning: there goes the day (and I'm being objective).
