Mary Rose Museum – Update 2016

DHA Designs have now updated the lighting for the Mary Rose Museum.

On completion of the conservation process for the hull, the “Hotbox” enclosure was removed allowing full, panoramic views of the ship remains.

The hull lighting was re-designed (and updated to all LED) giving a set of dramatic “looks” that (very) slowly dissolve, as well as a set of a/v presentations that project imMary Rose news imageages into and around the hull.

This phase of the museum design was by REAL Studios, a/v by Graham English, sound by Peter Key and lighting equipment and control by Control Lighting and Enliten.

Kuwait Oil Company Museum

In Spring 2016 we commissioned a new museum for the Kuwait Oil Company on the outskirts of Kuwait City.

Having first specified this in 2008 we then had to re-work it to incorporate as much LED as possible as the original specs were metal halide and tungsten. In fact many of fiKOC news imagettings were obsolete, and we were greatly assisted in bringing it up to current specs by the team from SI Electrical.

As well as traditional display lighting there is a large amount of darkness, and a lot of black shiny floors.

Some very nice exhibition design by Event and films by Graham English.
