An exhibition for Hermès
At its core, the world of Hermès is a world of beautiful materials, mastered by highly skilled artisans. Festival des Métiers is a travelling exhibition that offers visitors the chance to meet the craftsmen of the house. We created three interactive exhibits that reveal the manufacturing details that normally remain invisible to the naked eye.
Various work stations showed the diverse skills and phases that precede a precious accessory. Typical to the festival is its unpretentious character, or as the French say, “with its feet on the ground and its head in the sky”.
It prompted us to create digital additions that fitted in naturally with the overall feel of the exhibition. Steering away from technology-minded and rather alienating “highlight interventions" often seen in exhibition design, we opted for digital moments with artistic, fanciful and didactic qualities.
