The prolific career of the Dutch graphic designer Wim Crouwel was celebrated with a first UK retrospective by the Design Museum, designed by 6a architects. The exhibition spanned over 60 years of work, exploring Crouwel’s innovative use of grids and typography, which earned him the moniker ‘Gridnik’. The gallery was stripped back and opened up, allowing a 20-metre long table into the space, forming a subtle background to the works. The shifts of the table move visitors past, around and in between the pieces, reminiscent of Crouwel's use of three-dimensional space within two-dimensional design.
