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.

Submissions should include:
  • Live links (the url internet address) to designers/designs selected – and, if possible, to designers proprietary web site, their association/consortium sites (if any), primary manufacturing partner (if any).
  • Comments/insights about why the design has meaning, why you think it different, directional, inspiring. Speak in your personal, professional voice.
