The design refers to Lina Bo Bardi’s exhibition design for the Sao Paulo Museum of Art from 1968.
Two main elements, a welded wire mesh and a wooden cube function as see-through partition walls and provide hanging space for art works. Their appearance remind on elements of a public space. Separately these elements can be used for seating or as plinths and tables. The see-through concept puts the building and the environment in context to the displayed art-work.
The building is a newly refurbished villa formerly owned by Siemens in the east of Berlin. It is surrounded by a public park.The ensemble is listed why exhibitions should cause as less physical impact as possible on the structures. The bespoke partition walls highlight the art-works and in the same time show respect to the building and its environment.
