Realm were appointed to carry out the fit out of a temporary exhibition at the V&A in November 2018 to showcase the work of Mary Quant, the instrumental fashion designer from the 1960’s.
The project was split over two levels within Gallery 40, with a circular pavilion dominating the mezzanine space which also served as a projection surface to its front face. The development of the pavilion took full advantage of Realms 3D Inventor design software due to the complex developed shapes around the showcase opening. Other works on the mezzanine included manufacture of a stage and backwall, lightboxes, internal showcase display plinths, as well as perimeter wall graphics and AV packages.
Realm also supplied and installed bespoke upholstered panelling to a large number of the V&A’s existing showcases on the ground floor, as well as carrying out extensive re-decoration, installation of new showcase lighting, plus further AV and graphic works.
The project culminated in first class feedback from the museums in-house design, conservation and project management team to further cement Realms reputation in the museum and heritage sector.
