Here's some more information from the designers:
Tjep. was commissioned to design an exhibition for the Maritiem Museum in Rotterdam, covering the Dutch naval history over the centuries.
A selection of 50 objects, each representing one historical highlight, were displayed on specially designed furniture, standing on a total of 600 poles.
We chose poles as a visual binding element and as a metaphor for the constant dutch struggle to create stability on, and protection against, the omnipresent element in the Netherlands: water.
Opening: July 2009
