About Product Timecapsule


A time capsule is a historic cache of goods and/or information, usually intended as a method of communication with future generations. Product Timecapsule, a Vignelli Center for Design Studies Archives initiative, collects significant artifacts which, in conjunction with the final products they represent, create a multifaceted understanding of the design process. Each acquisition tells a rich story of its place in the history of design.
