‘The Future Starts Here’ at the V&A opens – Exhibition lighting by DHA Designs

DHA designs have completed work on ‘The Future Starts Here’ at the Victoria and Albert Museum. 

It marks the first time the museum has dedicated a display to the topic of the future. It is also the first major exhibition produced by the V&A’s Contemporary Architecture, Design and Digital team.

The exhibition features more than 100 designs of today, picked by the curators because they suggest what our near future might look like.


Visitors to The Future Starts Here will encounter the objects displayed across four zones, each dedicated to a different theme in tech — self, public, planet and afterlife.

The design for these zones are by Spanish architect Andrés Jaque’s Office for Political Innovation

DHA Designs recently completed lighting ‘Rodin and the art of ancient Greece’ at the British Museum.






The exhibition explores how the French sculptor visited the Museum in 1881 and was inspired by the Parthenon sculptures on display.

DHA Design Hintze Hall project shortlisted at 2018 Lighting Design Awards

May 3rd, this Thursday, sees the presentation of the 2018 Lighting Design Awards, by Lighting Magazine, at London’s Park Lane Hotel.

Sixteen awards will be presented, in categories that range from best lighting art installation to best lighting manufacturer. Over three hundred entries were submitted, reduced to a shortlist of 65 entries across the categories.

DHA Designs are delighted to have been shortlisted in the Heritage category for the Hintze Hall project, designed as part of Casson Mann’s revised exhibition scheme for this ‘cathedral of nature, which has already won a prized D&AD pencil in their Spatial Design category & has also been shortlisted at the 2018 Museum & Heritage Awards for their best new permanent exhibition award.

Only three entries were shortlisted for the Heritage category, and the other schemes by Ingenieure Bamberger & ÅF Lighting are very strong, so competition for this category will be great indeed. We look forward to the evening, and seeing which of the three entries was judged the winner.
