To inspire awe and wonder for visitors exploring cabinets and curiosities from Guillermo del Toro’s collections and capture the ‘fairy tale’ feeling at the root of his work. Design Solution Through the use of wall colours, textures, rugs, custom-designed wall paper wainscotting and photo murals, the team created an intimate atmosphere in a large gallery space. The exhibit also took into consideration accessibility, various learning styles and audience participation with legible labels and panels, videos discussing Guillermo del Toro’s collection in his own words, an audio guide and drawing station exercises. By recreating the atmosphere of del Toro’s home, called ‘Bleak House,’ the team brought this collection to life for visitors. A comic book wall was created using actual comic books to highlight the obsessive tendencies of such a collection.
