NGV: Mid-Century Modern

Interface Design

We designed and built four iPad interfaces for Mid-Century Modern, an exhibition showcasing post-war and modernist Australian furniture design at NGV Australia.

Mounted alongside key works from important Australian designers (including Grant Featherston, Clement Meadmore and Douglas Snelling) each iPad featured audio guides, documentary video, 360 degree views of furniture, magazine features and original sketches and blueprints.

We built the interface using HTML5, which allowed us to produce the smooth animations and swipe controls you might expect from a regular iOS app.
