Designwolf was commissioned to play a major role in the renewal of Museon’s customer journey. From arrival and parking to visiting the exhibitions, measures were taken to update the museum. The temporary exhibitions were also outdated and had to be revamped.

Meanwhile, Museon has worked together with National Geographic for many years. Every six months, they join forces to hold a new temporary photo exhibition. For these exhibitions, Designwolf developed a simple new display system based on LED light plates. This allowed for very thin display panels, which means the exhibition space can be calm and airy. So as not to detract attention from the photographs, all panels and fixtures are black. Fixtures consist of tubes which can be clamped anywhere on the floor or ceiling. A panel can then be fixed onto it in front or behind. You can also connect panels to each other to create longer display panels. This enables you to create themes and topics.

The Museon building is an entity difficult to ignore. As such, there’s no point fighting it. The entire building is built on a grid of squares 1.1 m x 1.1 m. These dimensions are also used in the exhibition: All panels are square and measure 1.1 m x 1.1 m.
