Beauty and the Bead

Museum projects

Beauty and the Bead | From Madonna to the Maasai | Tropenmuseum Amsterdam | 2006
Nominated by the Dutch Design Awards 2007 in the category Exhibition & Experience Design.

Jury report:
“The huge amount of items, the enormous space, the rich diversity, but above all the conscientious workmanship has struck the jury. This exhibition in the Tropenmuseum was one of a kind.

The compelling and effective exhibition design that reveals all the facets of the bead is truly remarkable. The grid arrangements with simple glass showcases perfectly served the purpose of what was displayed: a feast for the eyes.”
