Exhibition Design: Plaid transform The British Library into Mughal India

Posted by James Cartwright,

London-based design studio Plaid are in the business of creating environments; immersive environments specifically – exhibition and event spaces to be incredibly exact. The duo comprises Lauren Scully and Brian Studak, two creatives with a wealth of experience working in product, interior and architectural design, and now devoting their time to creating environments for brands. This particular piece of exhibition design was produced for The British Library in a show that examined the artistic legacy of the Mughal Empire in India, succinctly chronicling 400 years of history in an exhibit of 200 objects and bringing the architecture of the Mughal to bear on the exhibition space itself.
