london design biennale

In September 2016, Cooper Hewitt, Smithsonian Design Museum launched a complete “clone” of their popular Immersion Room Experience at the 2016 London Design Biennale in London England. Complete with Cooper Hewitt Pens, visitors could interact with the installation, collect and save wallpapers and their own designs as well as the designs and installations from the 37 countries participating in the exhibition throughout the Somerset House.

Below are mainly pictures of the end result. If you are interested, please read this very exhaustive report on “how” we did most of this project.
