Dutch Silver Museum installations by Tinker, Schoonhoven – Netherlands

October 16th, 2014 by retail design blog

A fun and modern museum for the whole family. That is what the renewed Netherlands Silver Museum at Schoonhoven is all about. Along an elongated, festively set table, theme cabinets with titles such as ‘Yes, I Do’ or ‘Heavenly Desire’ tell the story of silver in a refreshing and associative way. Visitors are enticed, as it were, to take a closer look.

The 14-metre-long dining table is much more than an eye-catcher, it also serves as a timeline. Visitors get to see how silver design changed over the centuries. The place-mats under the covers are multimedia presentations that explain the various styles. The surrounding cabinets each tell their own story, with their own imagery. The sides of the cabinets contain show-boxes, film clips, quizzes, and funny observations.
