Users can search the NOA for designers’ and archives’ names to find out about available materials and filter them by object type – e.g., photograph, letter, sketch or model. They can find specific collections or simply browse and learn about Dutch design history.
Design heritage clearinghouse
Premsela coordinates details of Dutch design and fashion heritage materials through the NOA in association with museums and archival institutions that house the materials – so-called heritage clusters. The NOA brings together information from the RKD’s Central Register of Design Archives and its RKDartists& database and links it to illustrations and descriptions from museum collections. The interface is the result of a years-long joint project by Premsela, the RKD and the NAi and was developed with Picturae.
