Danish National Maritime Museum exhibition by Kossmann.dejong, Helsingør – Denmark

November 19th, 2013 by retail design blog

Kossmann.dejong has designed the new display for the Danish National Maritime Museum in Helsingør. The exhibition spaces are all underground, surrounding a former dry dock. The architectural design comes from the well-known Danish architectural practice BIG.

The metaphor that underpins the multimedia exhibition is that of a journey, which starts with an imagining of the universal yearning to discover far away shores and experience adventures at sea. Denmark’s maritime history, up to the current role of the shipping industry globally, is told via a topical approach, including notions such as harbour, navigation, war and trade. The exhibition has been made accessible for a broad audience through the intertwining of many different perspectives on the shipping industry.

Kossmann.dejong made use of the unique sculptural qualities of the building in their scenography, so that architecture and interiors intensified and complemented each other. Very narrow spaces, for example, are used to evoke the oppressive atmosphere of the war. The wider, open space emphasise the openness of the sea, or the grand scale of contemporary globalisation.
