Lighting & print installation with underwater theme
At the Maritime Museum of Stockholm there is now a playroom with a theme of an underwater world. Big Image was chosen to help creating the beautiful ceiling. 60 sqm of printed fabric was fixed to an aluminium frame, made at Big Image in Täby, Sweden, by our aluminium constructors. The frame was then mounted to the ceiling to form a view of watching the ocean from below. The image for the artwork was captured by marine archaeologists outside of Gotland in Sweden.
The background for the project was that the Maritime Museum wanted to build a completely new playroom for their youngest visitors. It will suit its purpose for about ten years. To make this long-term installation they contacted Big Image as well as lighting designers to produce the ocean surface. One of the challenges was that ships were going to be fastened to the ceiling through the fabric. As you can see it went well!
This is what the ceiling looked like before the renovation.
And this is what it looked like afterwards!
Intriguing underwater experience created by fabric and lighting.
We always test mount large images for aluminium frames and lightboxes.
