A colorful design for an exhibition about Early Dutchmen - paintings and utensils - was requested by the director of Museum Boijmans. The 1300m2 exhibition hall was originally a place for sculpture, a high space with a cast floor and daylight from above. We chose to take the visitor by the hand by having him zigzag along colorful walls, with the paintings at the front and utensils from that time at the back. The walls are made of fabric, because of the softness of color and material, the lack of seams and the improvement of the acoustics. By giving the walls different heights, widths and colors, an order is created. If you look along the walls, you will see at least three different colors, which correspond to cities. The clear design is enormously guiding, the visitor feels which way to pass the wall. In this way he unconsciously follows the route of the exhibition and misses nothing. The colors we used come from the paintings and fit well with the old art: before 1900 it was very common to use a lot of color in an exhibition.
