Exhibition and installation design for Design Solutions Network.

Design Solutions Network is a group of leading architectural product suppliers including Resene, Best Wood, Mercer, Hettich, Feltex and Silestone. We collaborated with graphic design studio Light Box Creative, to completely re-imagine a typical trade show.

We were tasked with designing an event experience which promotes the suppliers products in a format that is more engaging, more cohesive and more contemporary than traditional displays. The solution had to build on DSN’s existing brand and tell a story that resonates with architects designers and specifiers. The exhibition also setup and packed down in just a few hours.

To answer the brief we designed a modular exhibition system including a series of pop up structures, housing interactive installations for each of the suppliers’ products. We developed an architectural aesthetic that references the construction process and plays on forms found in DSN’s existing brand and logo. This aesthetic was applied across the aluminium framing for the pavilion-like structures as well as a range of bar learners, coffee tables and bench seats. Between the pavilions, interactive installations and supporting furniture, we created a full spatial experience that can be configured differently to fit separate DSN event locations.
