THE BLACK BOX
Herman Kossmann, Mark de Jong
Spatial Designer, Exhibition designers
As exhibition designers we create narrative spaces. Space is as important for the story and experience as text, objects, film, light and sound. Space is being transformed and manipulated. Charged with drama, content and meaning. Our ideal exhibition space can be compared with a theatre hall: a black boxin which everything is possible. In contrast with the classical and most common museum space, the white cube, where daylight and white walls create the setting. Our manuscript also is a black box. An abstract translation of our ideal habitat. From here we start working with images, references and lots of makers and thinkers to create new realities.
