Deutsches Hygiene-Museum

BACKGROUND

“Future Food – What will we eat tomorrow?” is the title of a temporary exhibition at Deutsches Hygiene-Museum in Dresden, which opened in May 2020. Focusing on the global food system, the exhibition displays around 300 exhibits, including interactive installations and video art. The visitor is guided from stable and field to table, a journey full with experiences – Insights are given into topics such as food production processes, trading and the power of consumer choices.

RESULT

Through the themes of Production, Trade and Choice, the exhibition is divided in three designated spaces, representing each issue individually. In close cooperation with Architecture, Groenlandbasel, Switzerland, our task was to give the spaces a visual DNA that corresponds to the architectural design and represents each topic.

The graphic approach deals with the subject matter of consumer society. With a striking, yet simple and colourful design we aimed to create a dynamic visual language containing “Pop Art” influenced elements. Graphics are loaded with grids, supermarket attributes, stickers and comic inspired illustrations. The setting is simple but powerful, accessible for every visitor.

Deutsches Hygiene-Museum

BACKGROUND

For the temporary exhibition “Future Food” at The Hygiene Museum in Dresden, various communication tools needed a design to reflect the topic and attract new visitors. The exhibition is divided into three parts and treats themes such as justice in distribution, vegetarian nourishment, and the power of big food enterprises.

RESULT

An overall visual outlook and design was created to be applicable on different formats such as billboards, posters, flyers, invitation cards, as well as online media. Attributes such as style of fonts and colours reflect back to the design DNA created for the exhibition. Through using these visual codes we wanted to create a link that connects the space design with the entire set of communication tools.

Martin Gropius Bau

Task

In October 28, 2015 the exhibition “Russia–Germany, from confrontation to cooperation” opened at the museum Martin-Gropius-Bau in Berlin (initiated by the German-Russian museum Berlin-Karlshorst). As an already involved cooperation partner within the design of the exhibition it-self, we got asked to expand and integrate the visual concept and design in all printed media. The task was to develop a graphic concept for banners, leaflets and an invitation card.

Solution

We created a design to the printed material that has a strong independent identity with the main focus on representing the physical exhibition. We re-used the triangles as an element from the exhibition and created a more abstracted layout and graphic pattern. These triangles refer to fragments as a symbol of the multifaceted history of the German-Russian relationship. A balanced mix from both nations’ national colors was chosen to underline the two countries equal presence.

Between two Stools

BACKGROUND

A new permanent exhibition at NS-Zwangsarbeit in Berlin Schöneweide needed a concept and graphic design. The former forced labour camp in Schöneweide is the largest historical memorial in Europe documenting the destiny of forced labourers. The new exhibition “Between two Stools” deals with the fate of about 650,000 Italian prisoners of war.

The 240m2 exhibition opens in November 2016.

RESULT

An exhibition with an independent design that shows diversity. The interior, graphics and installations are fragmentarily designed, reflecting the personal stories of the Italian internees who once lived and worked in the camp.

Martin Gropius Bau

BACKGROUND

On the occasion of the 70th anniversary of the end of World War II the German-Russian Museum Berlin-Karlshorst initiated the temporary exhibition ”Germany-Russia, from confrontation to cooperation” to be exhibited at Martin-Gropius-Bau in Berlin in 2015. The exhibition gives an insight into German-Russian relations since 1945 and approaches the subject through a fragmentary stream that high lights particular milestones throughout their history. Together with the Berlin architects büroberlin and the media designers Schnellebuntebilder we were invited to develop a multidimensional exhibition concept and design to frame the theme and topic in the most suitable way.

RESULT

The history of German-Russian relations are neither linear nor continuous. The combination of graphic design and architecture emphasize and symbolize the diverse political and cultural dynamics between the two nations. Featured milestones in their history evolve as three-dimensional volumes growing out from the wall graphics. Through implementation of vividness in the entire exhibition design we gave some of the more central exhibits, letters and contracts a framework that engages through curiosity and attraction.
