A curiosity cabinet for museum visitors.



How can a museum become a space for learning and experimentation? 'The Work Kabinet' is prototype of a dynamic learning space with the aim to shift the experience of museum visitors from observation towards tactile interaction with objects. Objects, materials, books where presented to the public as means to facilitate workshops, tactile learning and interaction. The dynamic exhibition format of Work-Kabinet is designed on the simple idea of the shelf: shelf-size elements stacked upon each other to form a landscape tables, drawers, plateaus, seating and working surfaces – a structure that can be assembled in endless variations.
