Project: Modellkammaren - The Model Chamber
Client: Marinmuseet - The Maritime Museum, Karlskrona
To try and evaluate concepts and ideas in the 18th century, models was one of the best way to go. In 1752 King Adolf Fredrik ordered that these models would be collected and displayed in model houses in Stockholm, Gothenburg and Karlskrona. This collection of historic models forms the origin and is heart of the current Maritime Museum at Karlskrona.
Expology in cooperation with the museum created concept, text, graphic and exhibition design for this permanent exhibition. The exhibition enables the visitors to understand the crucial role model making plays in shipbuilding, both in the past and today.
