Smithsonian Cooper-Hewitt’s Website Lets you Browse the online Collection by Color.

November 22, 2013CooperHewitt

Objects with images now have up to five representative colors attached to them. The colors have been selected by our robotic eye machines who scour each image in small chunks to create color averages. These have then been harvested and snapped to the grid of 118 different colors — derived from the CSS3 palette and naming conventions — below to make navigation a little easier.
