UCL North Lodge Gallery Space, London by Mobile Studio

[SMALL PROJECTS 2011] Working closely with the curators of the UCL Contemporary Projects, Mobile Studio designed a matrix of display unit and joinery items for a new exhibition/collection called ‘INK’

The space is inspired by Alladin’s Cave meets Sir John Soane’s Museum resulting in a modern-day cabinet of curiosities. Two walls of the space are clad with more than 130 boxes of vrying sizes carefully designed to house an eclectic collection of previous objects and artwork.

Each box has a minimally detailed LED light to create a specially lit yet unobstructive display unit. The cabinet walls also house pullout joinery items; a step-ladder to reach upper shelves, a bench and a stool. All units can be tucked away for a flexible floor space to accommodate special events and talks.

Form of contract Bespoke Letter Contract
Total cost of two-storey side extension £5,000
