Pre-Raphaelite Sisters opens at the National Portrait Gallery

DHA Designs have just completed work on the National Portrait Gallery’s latest exhibition, the Pre-Raphaelite Sisters, featuring some of the most famous women in art. But unusually, this time the exhibition tells the story of the women who featured in the works – the muses, models, partners, artists & relations who inspired, sat for & even worked among this most famous group of artists.

The exhibition has received 4-star reviews in the Telegraph, Time Out & Evening Standard, who called it ‘riveting’ & ‘addictive’.

It is open from now until the end of January 2020.

More information, and tickets, can be found on the gallery’s website here.

Mary Rose Museum – Update 2016

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 imMary Rose news imageages 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.
