Bentheim will present final concepts next week for the design of the Queen Elizabeth exhibition which opens at the National Maritime Museum in spring next year.
The exhibition, which carries a design budget of ‘£500 000-plus’, is the quatrocentennial anniversary of the death of Queen Elizabeth and will feature a large number of historical pieces previously unseen outside of private collections.
The consultancy is creating the branding, 2D graphics and the 3D display for the exhibition.
‘We are designing the external pavilions and galleries to create an energetic and accessible display of the items and set them in context. We take the story and the artefacts and create a world that will help people to understand the history and the objects. It’s about creating a substance and atmosphere for the show,’ says Bentheim managing director David Bentheim.
The consultancy won the work following a six-way creative pitch. Some 26 consultancies tendered for the job initially.
