Palaces on The Seas

Palaces on The Seas

Exhibition of historic objects from the collection of French Lines shipping company.  Exhibition design, exhibition graphics and construction project management.

Maritime Museum, Hong Kong.

May-August 2014

The design concept for this exhibition was to present all exhibits in the context of the Ocean Liner’s ship structure and its journey. Exhibits related to arrival and departure (such as souvenirs and promotional posters) were presented in departure and arrival zones. In between these zones a massive abstract ship structure was placed that contained all exhibits that were originally used on board, surrounded by a ‘sea’ of historic photographs.

A reconstruction of the popular deck game of shuffle puck concluded the exhibition.
