Exhibitions create spaces where visitors encounter stories and artefacts.
Designing exhibitions means creating space for experiences, individually adapted to the content, stimulating the visitor to engage with it.
Exhibition design includes the development of an overall concept – from space design to graphic theme – in close collaboration with architects, artists, light designers and graphic designers. We supervise the project through all phases until the opening.
