Inca design a touch-screen table for a leading London museum


London’s hidden gem, the Sir John Soane Museum, sparkles anew having completed a 7-year, £7 million programme to restore it to the original design of 1937 - the year when Soane passed away and left the house in trust.

The Holborn-based museum, famed for its collection of architectural curiosities, boasts several new rooms previously closed off to the public including the catacombs and stunning glass-ceilinged lobby. There’s also a collection of lovingly-restored artefacts displayed in their original settings.

 

Inca were part of the team behind ‘Opening Up the Soane’, a new exhibition in the Foyle Space where visitors can engage with Soane and his legacy.

 

Inca created the graphics for an interactive touch screen table that provides a visual timeline of the work carried out during the restoration. Visitors can browse through seven sections of information with text and picture details including the re-creation of Soane’s wallpaper using traditional methods and his bathroom (indoor bathrooms were virtually unheard of at the time!)
