The EMPEROR’S JEWELS exhibit at the Aga Khan Museum.
We produced the gallery walls, Islamic inspired arches and display cases for the exhibition at the Canadian museum. Featuring deep jewel-tone colours and beautiful millwork, the exhibit is breathtaking.
The objects in the exhibition were drawn from Juwait’s al-Sabah Collection, the largest collection of Islamic artwork in the world. Objects included handcrafted stone, trays, gems cups and artwork.
Out of the Depths: The Blue Whale Story at Royal Ontario Museum
Holman was contracted to create a strong design story for this visitor experience. We developed an exciting, informative, and interactive museum exhibition.
We designed, fabricated and installed everything for the 5,00 square foot exhibit. This included display cases, interactive features as well as an 80-foot skeleton of a blue whale.
