Fortune museum

The exhibition ‘Fortune Museum’ marked the 15th anniversary оf the Moscow Museum of Modern Art. Visitors were given a rare opportunity to view the museum’s library, become acquainted with its storage departments and earliest acquisitions.
The main challenge was to design a flexible structure and identity for the exhibition, as its exact contents were only specified at the last minute. ‘Strange’ shapes, derived from fortune cookies, are in fact seating benches that punctuate an otherwise neutral white environment.
