The Röhsska museum

Spree has developed five atmospheric and exciting solutions to the Röhsska Museum's new basic exhibition on East Asian objects. The various solutions interplays in multiple ways with the museum's visitors.

About the case.

The Röhsska Museum has seen the need to replace their older, existing base exhibition in order to add new research, improve accessibility and thereby increase the the interest to more visitors. The Röhsska Museum has therefore, based on the museum’s East Asian collections, produced a new exhibition that includes old East Asian objects from the younger Stone Age to the present. Spree has developed five atmospheric and exciting solutions to the new exhibition, which in various ways interact with the museum’s visitors.

The five applications Spree has developed consist of four touch solutions and a projection solution. On the various touch solutions, the museum’s visitors can immerse themselves in the content of some of the display cases that are located around the museum. For example, the museum has a large collection of Chinese snuff bottles in various materials and decor. With the help of the touch solution, visitors can zoom in on each individual bottle and learn more about their history and various materials.

About the Röhsska Museum and the exhibition "Inspiration East Asia"

“Design is everywhere and affects us all. From morning to evening, every day. At the Röhsska Museum, things, people and perspectives meet from different times to challenge our ideas about design and society.”

“This new, permanent exhibition offers a meditative experience and tells the story of the meeting between the Nordic countries and East Asia. About what Swedish adventurers brought home around the turn of the century 1900 and what Nordic artists created with inspiration from East Asia. Here objects come together from one of Europe’s oldest museum collections with contemporary design.”

“The museum’s Chinese collection is one of the oldest museum collections in Europe with great cultural-historical value. The oldest item is Banshan ceramics, a tomb of 2500 years before Christ. The foundation of this collection was created at the beginning of the 20th century, when the Röhsska Museum arranged a purchasing expedition to China, led by the Swedish adventurer and botanist Thorild Wulff.”
