The Smithsonian’s Cooper-Hewitt design museum in New York City is closed for renovations until next year, but it has released a beta version of its website to allow visitors to view their online collection by color.

The online database has 55% of the Smithsonian Cooper-Hewitt, National Design Museum’s collection. Viewers can browse via nine categories which include period, country, people, and color.

To browse by color, users just need to select from the 117-color grid sections which are based on the prominent colors or pigments on the pieces.

The design of the website was inspired by Amsterdam’s Rijksmuseum website.
