DHA Designs have just completed the lighting for this prestigious new exhibition at the Museum of London. Evoking the sights and sounds of Victorian London, the design uses a mixture of colour and projection, together with conservation grade exhibition lighting to celebrate Dickens’ bi-centennial.
Highlights include Dickens’ desk and chair, original hand-written manuscripts, as well as the original Newgate Prison doors!
The exhibition was designed and curated in house, and follows DHA’s work on London Street Photography in the same gallery earlier this year.
dha designs completed the lighting of this wonderful collection of Illuminated Manuscripts at the British Library this week. Considered possibly the greatest collection of their type ever shown together, the exhibition has over 150 manuscripts, together with royal portraiture, sculpture and maps.
Lighting these fragile works without creating shadows or glare was a challenge, but The Times described the collection as “beautifully displayed and lit”. The exhibition was opened by HM The Queen on 10th November.

The Tomb of the Unknown Craftsman at the British Museum is a fascinating journey through Grayson Perry’s mind, as he mixes his own objects with his favourites from the BM’s archives. DHA worked closely with Grayson and the BM team to deliver a revealing and fun look at this fantastic artist.
