Opus Anglicanum @ The V&A Museum

Opening in October 2016, DHA Designs were delighted to work on this beautiful collection of Medieval Embroidery.  The exhibition was designed by Line Lu
nd of the V&A, who created a permanent-looking exhibition to house these very fragile and rare works.

DHA focused around 400 fibre optics and other spotlights on site to create a delicate lighting solution to every object, working together with a range of lenders including the Vatican, the Royal Collection and many churches and cathedrals.  DHA ensured that the astonishing details, thread-work and images that have been preserved in these objects could be seen.   The lighting and design creates a series of jewel boxes that illuminates these beautifully preserved artefacts, which sparkle under the careful lighting, even at only 30 – 50 lux.

Many of these objects are rarely displayed and they won’t be brought together again, so it was a privilege to light such a special and unique exhibition.
