Revealing what's underneath: Bureau Hindermann has developed an exhibition module for the Geberit information centre and has also re-designed the exhibition space.
That which is still visible during construction soon disappears behind the plasterwork: plumbing systems are technological works of art. The exhibition at the Geberit information centre shows just how they work. Pipe, flushing and drainage systems, the Geberit AquaClean WC and much more are exhibited on eleven displays. Modules which combine concrete, glass and fabric explain how they work.
A communication column housing a screen for educational films stands behind a raw concrete plinth. They show how easily the systems can be installed. Below the screen there is a stand for brochures. The columns can be positioned on either the left or right half of the plinth. A flocked stand can be used either to present exhibits for handling or to accommodate an element shaped like a towel. The third variation shows plumbing systems before they are built into the wall. Behind, fabric panels hint at the wonderful world of Geberit. The panels are printed in two layers to give them visual depth. They are hung from a lighting element which also serves as the power supply for the modules.
The Geberit team can assemble the modules itself. Bureau Hindermann has put together a set of instructions. The displays can be positioned on an orthogonal grid. The grid is marked out by a track system which accommodates halogen spotlights for the best possible lighting. A few strategically positioned elements have therefore allowed a well conceived, robust and versatile exhibition to be staged.
