Here is an audiovisual preview of “Connected Objects. Memory of Design at Design Museum of Barcelona”: a digital platform that will bring together some of the accounts from the protagonists and the most representative objects of product design belonging to the museum’s collections.

The Connected Objects project, currently being put together by the documentation centre at the Design Museu of Barcelona, will unite a wide variety of documentary, archive, bibliographic and audiovisual resources revolving around the life cycle of objects, to facilitate understanding and critical analysis in this area.
With a constantly growing archive, the project currently involves 30 designers, 44 companies and more than 80 objects. All of these pieces belong to the collections at the museum.
