Permanent Exhibition Design - using metal coatings
We applied our real metal coatings (thermal spray) finished ‘Aged Brass AM.4’ to all the exhibition stands throughout this new exhibition. This permanent exhibition design, running till 2028, tells the story of the bombe machines in the actual location that housed the machines which broke Enigma during WW2.
Working with designer Ben Mehigan at Nissen Richard Studio, we created the appropriate finish to represent the required look. He was looking for a brass finish. Many of the exhibits and artefacts are made of brass or have brass parts and fixings, so our AM.4 brass (aged) finish was a suitable match.
Aged Brass AM.4 reflects a worn industrial metal look that works so well within a period setting. It gives the appearance of having been in situ for many years. Appropriate given this wartime exhibition revisits a time three quarters of a century pasted.
We are often asked to create or match a finish to a period building or historical setting/exhibition. All our real metal coatings can be aged appropriately to suit any design brief. Differing degrees of metal finish patina can be achieved in brass, bronze, copper and pewter to any required spec. We are experienced in working closely with designers and architects to achieve specific results. For more information call our office on 01825 763485 or see our metal finish page.
“I am very happy with the overall finish. It feels very fitting in the space and was worthwhile spending the time getting it right.” Designer Ben Mehigan nissenrichardsstudio.com
factorysettings.co.uk project managed the making of ‘The Bombe Breakthrough’. We worked closely with them to ensure we delivered on time with a high standard of workmanship. Bletchley Park Trust are 'impressed and delighted' with this visually impactful exhibition.
