Making Poop Retrieval System and MDF Display Stands for a Lego Exhibition [147]




My joinery business was commissioned to build all of the display equipment for the Lego exhibition as part of the Great Exhibition of the North 2018. This entailed building 8 x 1m wide MDF display cabinets with raised backs, display sign boards and around 50 bespoke display pedestals. This is for the Lego Timeline of Northern Innovation created by the amazing Lego architect, Steve Mayes from Brick This (links below). This was a fun project and Steve’s Lego models are truly amazing. Get yourself along to the exhibition – it runs until September 2018.

    Oh those are fantastic stands!

    Your comment about your work being intended to just blend into the background reminded me that, way back, when I worked in museums I used to find myself going to look at exhibits but spending more time going "Oh that's clever.. how did they make that…" so I could pinch ideas for display stands , supports, signage… Going to pop over to Newcastle in the next couple of weeks so will pop in and have a look. Probably at the legos but more than likely the stands.

    Curiously, I always look at the display stands and backgrounds when I go to shows and exhibitions. I often wonder "who made that?", "how did the do it?", "what was their brief?". I could ask questions all day about the stands ! Good work.
