Museum scenography, Brussels


The lace room tells visitors the history and making of this precious textile.


The layout of the room seeks to arouse the curiosity of the visitor, to give him enthusiasm and the wings on his feet to complete the complete visit. The room offers an optimal display of lace pieces, but also the explanation of their universe, of the context in which the production of lace took hold in Brussels and has become one of its symbols.


The configuration of the designed space is scalable: certain separating elements can be moved and suggest new paths, without the concept of the exhibition being distorted. Use of fabrics and tapestries to create a padded and warm atmosphere; it is by addressing all the visitor's senses that lace comes alive again: projection on small film screens: showing lace over the centuries, tactile space dedicated to the different materials used for the production of lace, micro space - visual: the meticulousness of the lace work can only be fully grasped by observing a piece through an enlargement lens. Through a partition pierced by holes of different sizes, the visitor plunges his gaze into pieces of lace which are partly enlarged by sliding microscopic lenses.


The plan of the room gently suggests several routes to visitors. Visitors can thus allow themselves to be guided freely by their desires as they interact with the elements of the exhibition, instead of being trapped in an overly directive labyrinth. This degree of freedom makes each visitor's experience more pleasant and personal. They thus take better advantage of the space and the exposure, without losing the common thread.
