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.

    I feel like these photos are being misleading with the amount of activity that seems to be going on. They do feel busy, but I am having a hard time gauging with the way the photos are being exposed.

    Lovely!
    The reference to: water, harbour, navigation… is very subtle.

    BRAVO!

    it’s a splendid mise-en-scene. the miriapod-like white legs of display cases is a very subtle yet Dutch-witty reference to paddles popping out of a huge boat’s keel.

    Altogether they make an abstract red fleet carrying the exhibit’s artifacts…

    Nice coloring of both flooring and exhibit. It has a good feel to it, ambiance. It suits Rotterdam.
