Sunpan Touts Work of Minority Designers With Kaleidoscope Project Sponsorship

Contemporary furniture resource Sunpan is once again a sapphire sponsor of The Kaleidoscope Project, an annual effort that showcases the work of minority interior designers as they renovate a historic property.

This year, the project is overseeing the renovation of four residential units in the historic 1906 Tyler Street Firehouse in Pittsfield, Mass.

"The Kaleidoscope Project does a magnificent job in showcasing the creative talents of BIPOC interior designers (Black, Indigenous, and People of Color) within our industry," said Sunpan President and CEO Sundeep Bagga. "We are proud to support this initiative again as our company strongly believes in the importance of diversity and representation in the field of interior design."

With the Sapphire sponsorship, BIPOC designers taking part in The Kaleidoscope Project received product donations and subsidies, granting them access to Sunpan’s expansive catalogue. An additional monetary donation was also granted to The Kaleidoscope Project to provide scholarships to members of the BIPOC community interested in pursuing a career in the arts and design industry.

“We are proud to be a part of a new era in Pittsfield, and to introduce our mission, designs and sourced products, which will remain intact in these spaces for future residents, long after these creations are closed to the public,” said Amy Lynn Schwartzbard, founder of The Kaleidoscope Project. “This further aligns with our mission of sustainability and is unique to the Showhouse paradigm.”

The Pittsfield property opened to the public Aug. 20 for daily tours, and those will continue from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily through Sept. 5.

Proceeds from ticket sales will go towards The Kaleidoscope Project’s goal of providing scholarships and inspiring internships to those in the BIPOC community interested in careers in a creative field – through partnerships with educational programs and other non-profit organizations.
