Telling Tales exhibition, Victoria & Albert Museum, London by Nissen Adams

  • Comment

Nissen Adams designed the exhibition space for Telling Tales: Fantasy and Fear in Contemporary Design, which ran from July to October last year

Working closely with lighting designer Zerlina Hughes at ZNA Consultancy, Nissen Adams defined three distinctive themed spaces within the exhibition, which were then filled with design objects corresponding to the theme of each area.

Spaces were defined with a series of transparent screens of abstract trees; a mirrored room and large graphic decorative motifs as wallpaper and floor; and darkened corridors with a slowly moving video on the ceiling, with slot windows that allow fragmented views of the objects behind.
Cost: £75,000
