The new “Nasjonal Museet”, the National Museum in Oslo, which is scheduled to open in 2021, will house the collections so far distributed in three separate locations in Oslo: the National Gallery, the Museum of Contemporary Art and the Museum of Industrial Design. In its new large spaces, the museum will be able to present artworks never exhibited before and organize a rich program of temporary exhibitions. The project offered us the extraordinary opportunity to shape an exhibition space in all its aspects.
Light will be an essential component of the exhibition story: it will help to create those variations that are indispensable to keep the visitor’s attention alive in the course of the visit, reinforcing and accompanying the continuous changes in register which constitute one of the fundamental criteria on which the exhibition project is based.
