28 November 2012 – Bibliothèque
The Treasures Gallery at the Natural History Museum shows 22 unique exhibits, chosen from the 70 million specimens in their collection.
Each has a fascinating story to tell and was selected to represent the Museum's scientific, aesthetic, historical, social and cultural worth.
The first edition of Charles Darwin's 'On the Origin of Species', a 4.5 billion year old meteorite, the most expensive book in the world and the fossil that sparked the discovery of dinosaurs, are just some of the amazing objects on display.
Bibliiotheque developed the interactive digital labels and environmental graphics, alongside Casson Mann who delivered the spatial design. The digital labels enable visitors to explore each object in much more depth, than a conventional captioning system.
This beautiful Gallery was officially opened by HRH The Duchess of Cambridge on 27th November. The gallery is open to the public from the 30th November. More details here.

The V&A's autumn exhibition, 'Hollywood Costume', explores the central role costume design plays in cinema storytelling. Bringing together over 100 of the most iconic movie costumes from across a century of film-making, it is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to see the clothes worn by unforgettable and beloved characters such as Dorothy Gale, Indiana Jones, Scarlett O'Hara, Jack Sparrow, Holly Golightly and Darth Vader.
Bibliotheque had the pleasure of working on the exhibition with Casson Mann and Senior Guest Curator, Deborah Nadoolman Landis. A full project page will go up soon.

Dieter Rams, San Francisco MOMA
03 October 2011 – Bibliothèque
Along with Super Contemporary at Taipei Fine Arts Museum, Bibliothèque continues to be represented on the international exhibition circuit. Dieter Rams: Less and More is currently on show at the San Fancisco Museum of Modern Art, presenting more than 200 models and objects by Rams and his team. We designed the exhibition in 2009 for the Design Museum in London, and key elements from that show are used once again here.
If you didn't see the exhibition in London, and happen to be near SFMOMA in the coming months, it's well worth a look. Images here courtesy of ObjectsUSA and Mark Adams of Vitsoe.
