CWC Interiors, a furniture solutions expert who works with Top 500 corporation clientele, through its president and CEO Fred Yuson, has donated the 62-piece Vitra Miniatures Collection to the college. The pieces, to include the masterpieces of Frank Lloyd Wright, Mies van der Rohe, Frank Gehry, Charles and Ray Eames and Studio 65, among many others, originated from the Vitra Design Museum in Wheil am Rhein, Germany, whose goal is to explore the relationship of art and design with everyday culture.
