"Spotlight" feature will be accessible from the Library's homepage above.
The Bienenstock Furniture Library announced that it has launched a featured area on its web site entitled “Spotlight.”
"In keeping with the Library’s transition into a worldwide center for design, research and collaboration will use our 'Spotlight' to connect with designers worldwide and to share their experiences & designs with others," commented Charles Sutton, President.
“Spotlight” will highlight new designers monthly, with a focus on furniture designers. It will also be feature designers of textiles, finishes/constructions, architecture, and interiors.
"We will be looking for furniture designers and their designs/products," noted Karla Webb, Cureator, "who are advancing the practice of design, leading edge and/or world-class in their niche, of interest to professional designers and/or scholars or interest nationally and internationally.
To help professionals to see – and use – the Library in new ways, “Spotlight” will leverage content on multiple platforms.
