Exhibition design for Home Stories: 100 years, 20 Visionary Interiors

The exhibition explores the history and future of the private interior through images, documents and artefacts related to 20 groundbreaking spaces that have changed the way we live. Since Vitra Design Museum exhibitions travel for several years, our goal was to develop a modular, durable and easily transportable display system that makes efficient use of materials and can adapt to any space while escaping the stern orthogonality that characterises many modular systems. Given the waste footprint often generated by traveling exhibitions, we eliminated single-use and non-recyclable materials, and all offcuts form part of the display system. Visually, the hard reflectivity of the stainless steel sheets is contrasted by the warm materiality of the cork bricks that support them, and the mirrored surface offers unexpected angles of view onto the objects on display, as well as projecting a play of light and shadows onto the ceilings of the museum spaces designed by Frank Gehry.
