Nobel Peace Center
Oslo, Norway | July 2005
Small Design Firm was selected to help design and implement four large interactive installations for the Nobel Peace Center in Oslo, Norway. The Nobel Field, honoring each Laureate, is an illuminated garden of LCD displays, LED grass, and sound that responds to your movements through the space. To honor the life of Alfred Nobel, we designed the Nobel Chamber, housing an interactive book in the spirit of our Illuminated Manuscript. The third installation, the Wallpapers, is a continuous display surface of 68 million pixels, designed to allow visitors to further explore the life, work, and legacy of the Nobel Laureates. Finally, we designed the ambient sound and light for the Register, an abstract map of the world that serves as a gateway to the Center.
These interactives were a collaboration between Small Design Firm, Timon Botez and the London architects Adjaye/Associates.Back to Portfolio
