The design is subtle yet containing playful details in order to give the exhibited objects and exploration full attention. The objective was to create a neutral and timeless design, which can last over time and give room for individual expression for each exhibition design, from year to year. The keywords are Scandinavian minimalism and attention to detail.
Browsing the index the user can see all furnitures from a given year, a given designer or producer. Like browsing the exhibition the user can study the individual designs from different perspectives.
In other words the website works as a platform to give justice to the beautiful and experimenting designs with a catalogue dating over 50 years back, as well as providing a digital platform for each yearly exhibition, and all the information needed in that context.
The site is build with storyblok and gridsome with a custom frontend in storyblok.
