Client: Dutch National Museum of Antiquities, Leiden
Project: Spatial design for temporary exhibition
A selection of 25 scientific books that influence our lives until today: Galilei, Boerhaave, Linnaeus, Einstein, Doesburg and many more. All books have a strong connection with the academic history of the city of Leiden and its university library. The universal meaning and value of the books is reflected in the exhibition design that treats the objects like jewels: perfectly lit and displayed in a blue surrounding, their appearance and visions still fill us with wonder.
Graphic design: Kathrin Hero
Banners: Riwi Collo Type, book mounts by Bouwko Landstra en Koert Verberne
