Whales: Beneath the Surface

Whales: Beneath the Surface – Lighting by DHA Designs

DHA Designs provided lighting schemes for both the majestic central Hintze Hall, and the coinciding exhibition Whales: Beneath the Surface. To accompany the The Natural History Museum’s unveiling of the new Blue Whale in the Hintze Hall, a new exhibition opened at the same time emphasising the museum’s shift in emphasis from extinct marvels to endangered wonders.

Whales: Beneath the surface provides visitors with the chance to encounter some of the largest objects in the museums vast collection, and to reveal the complex lives of the biggest animals on the planet. On display there are more than 100 specimens which range from huge skeletons, skulls and most impressively the preserved flipper of a blue whale.

DHA recently completed the lighting of Extinction: Not the End of the World at London’s Natural History Museum. The exhibition displays a fascinating range of specimens, models and graphics.
