The vorarlberg museum is a state museum looking back on 150 years of collecting, researching and presenting archaeology, history, traditions and culture. This museum always hosts five exhibitions simultaneously. Least because of this, the museum requires a flexible signage-design gentle enough to match the atmosphere of the interior spaces but strong enough to hold its own against changing exhibition graphics. We came up with a signage system consisting of light using the surfaces given by the architecture. Additionally room names and small signage are carried out in response to the respective surfaces.
The perception of history is ever changing, depending on new findings or shifts in culture and society. The lettering of the museum on the protective roof accommodates this by changing its appearance depending on the incident light and the point of view. It was designed in collaboration with Stefan Sagmeister who created the corporate design of the museum.
