Studiodiem And Mash Design Create Exhibition Design
Based around the themes of family, fashion and music. Studiodiem created the exhibition design together with Mash Chudasama from Mash Design who worked on the exhibition graphics.
In an interview with designweek.co.uk and Arnaud Dechelle, studioDiem founder said; “The main inspiration for the exhibition design concept is drawn from a vintage suitcase in which Amy kept family pictures.”
Dechelle says, “Early on the family showed the curator a very interesting suitcase with lots of pictures in there. In a way it’s a snapshot of her life in that suitcase – the sections were organised around it loosely chronologically.
“The big concept is having the suitcase right at the centre.”
