With over 4.5 million objects in its permanent collection, the V&A is the world’s largest museum of decorative arts and design. But with such a huge archive to explore, how do you discover the unknown? Cole connects to the V&A Museum’s database, and displays an object at random from the collection each time you open a new tab. In the latest version, you can customise your search terms, view a recent history of the items that have come back, and lots more. Made with support and kind permission from the Victoria and Albert Museum.
Cole requires very minimum permissions and is relatively safe to use.
