Royal Dublin Society
Since its inception in 1731, the Royal Dublin Society (RDS) has grown from a small gathering of visionaries into one of Ireland’s most influential bodies.
As a venue famed for hosting events, the RDS identified an opportunity to develop a temporary exhibition programme to take place during particular events and commissioned Tandem.
With an extensive collection of information and images supplied by specialists at the RDS we worked with the client to identify star images and stories which would be developed across graphic interpretation. The graphic displays introduce the principle themes that are further explored through a uniform graphic language.
The exhibitions are situated within a busy thoroughfare at the RDS, as a result we had to consider materials which would be suitable for purpose.
We took advantage of the double height ceilings, working with Display Contracts to create large scale interpretive fabric walls alongside graphic lecterns and audio points.
The exhibitions utilise the RDS’ collection of photographs and audio material. Additional content and focus are provided by audio components throughout the space, which continue the story introduced within the graphics.
We also worked with RDS to develop a temporary exhibition Aga Khan, 90 years of the Nations Cup at the Dublin Horse Show, which used the same temporary graphic display system.
