Exhibition Design Consultancy for "The Science of Happiness Exhibition & Event Day"

Our exhibition designers were contacted by Chinmaya UK who were planning an exhibition and event day.


The opening of the exhibition was in only two weeks’ time and on a micro budget!

After initially discussing the exhibition design project requirements it became clear that this UK charity urgently needed professional exhibition design assistance.

Within two days we were meeting the client at Quaker House in London. During our initial consultation meeting we discuss various possibilities to deliver “The Science of Happiness Exhibition” in line with the unique message of Swami Chinmayananda.

Firstly our exhibition designer visited the auditorium where the exhibition would be held to get a feel of the space, lighting etc.  Listening to the clients’ aspirations and goals a concept was sketched, this sketch can be seen in the images.

The concept design guided the visitors around the outer exhibition unfolding various questions in order to make people think about what is real happiness? Also at this time they were able to immerse themselves in some low tech interactive's, before entering the inner sanctum. The inner sanctum was sighted directly under the large sky light which gives the auditorium its name “the light”. When you entered the space you would be confronted with a simple mirror surrounded by famous quotes. Instantly the visitor asks themselves why is there a mirror?

The message being “that happiness is within you”.

SMA design are not here just for large exhibitions, we offer professional exhibition design assistance on limited budgets.
