Profile

Exhibition design, architecture, media planning, graphic design, programming - Studio Tatwerk bundles the disciplines involved in exhibition design through its interdisciplinary team and network. New design approaches and points of view in connection with new media should convey contemporary contents to the visitor. We translate content into walk-in narrative and experience spaces. In the staging of cultural, historical and scientific themes, we develop an individual formal language that is developed from the spatial conditions, the target group and the intention of the project to convey the content. We conceive a narrative structure and visual language that informs and touches the visitor in equal measure. To this end, we offer various levels of communication, which can be didactically or informatively oriented, contain playful elements or have an atmospheric effect. Exhibits are integrated into the dramaturgical context and staged coherently in the media. Thus the visit to the exhibition becomes an inspiring, exciting and active experience.
