Imperial War Museum London has become the first museum in the world to physically and intellectually present the Holocaust narrative within the context of the Second World War. Spanning two floors and occupying over 3000m2, the new galleries tell the story of the Second World War and the Holocaust for a 21st century audience, engaging future generations of museum visitors with this complex and formative period of human history. We feel very privileged to have contributed to this prestigious project designed by Ralph Appelbaum Associates (WWII gallery) and Casson Mann (Holocaust gallery). We worked with Scena Productions, Beck interiors and Ay Pe to design, develop, build and install a wide variety of physical interactives and replicas. Interactives include a newspaper front page creator, Enigma machine and period radio. We also created a period fireplace, plus a number of touchable models and replicas including a toy sausage dog. All the exhibits are designed to be accessible to all visitors of all ages without appearing childlike, in keeping with the look and feel of the galleries. The museum receives an extremely high volume of visitors each year so the tactile exhibits needed to be robust, durable and easy to clean. A big thank you to the brilliant IWM team in helping us to deliver such a successful project and for being so hands on in their approach. The galleries are open Wednesday to Sunday from 10am to 6pm and well worth a visit.

Breaking news! Prestiżowy Red Dot Award 2021 dla wystawy stałej w Muzeum Józefa Piłsudskiego w Sulejówku! Wyróżnienie otrzymaliśmy w kategorii Brands&Communication Design (Spatial Communication). Cieszymy się, że zaproponowana przez nas narracja, dobór środków przekazu, atmosfera, jaką uzyskaliśmy dzięki grze świateł, dźwięków, kolorów, faktur zastosowanych materiałów, a także oddziaływanie na emocje i włączanie widza w aktywną interpretację przedstawianych faktów, mają wymiar uniwersalny i zostały docenione w tak prestiżowym konkursie. Wystawa stała to wspólne dzieło konsorcjum firm: Ralph Appelbaum Associatesu, Platige Image oraz naszej pracowni - WXCA oraz zespołu ekspertów z Muzeum Józefa Piłsudskiego w Sulejówku. Ze strony WXCA wystawę tworzyli: Marta Sękulska-Wrońska, Szczepan Wroński, Piotr Łosek, Paweł Grodzicki, Krzysztof Budzisz, Małgorzata Dembowska, Michał Lipiec. Fot. Marcin Czechowicz.
