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 images 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.
DHA Designs have designed the lighting for IKEA’s new museum in Älmhult, Sweden.
Running from 2014 we worked with museum designers RAA and architects Wilkinson Eyre, and then directly for IKEA, completing the job in Spring 2016.
By using a combination of Erco, Concord and some fine led extrusions from Lightworks.
In April we commissioned the new EPIC museum at the CQH Building in Dublin.
This new museum, set inside underground vaults by the Liffey, tells the story of the Irish Diaspora. It was designed by Event, with a/v by GE&Co and Elbow and sound by Peter Key. Lighting support was by High Res in Dublin.

The Ben Franklin Museum in Philadelphia
The Benjamin Franklin Museum is the subject of an article on the Museum + Heritage website this month. Not only is the unique nature of the man discussed, giving rise to a fascinating exhibition about life in Revolutionary America, but also the level of Anglo-American co-operation required to make the project come to fruition. We worked with Casson Mann on this project, and the American curators, Remer & Talbott.
