An award-winning installation that brought Copenhagen Museum to the streets.

After a rigorous development period, the Museum of Copenhagen, in association with Gibson International and design studio Space & Time, launched a giant multi-touch, multimedia installation in one of the central squares in Copenhagen.

Væggen (“The Wall”) brought the museum’s collection into the streets, making their own history accessible to the people. Combining a high-low approach to aesthetics, four brilliant state-of-the-art screens were mounted inside the industrial surrounds of a 40ft shipping container, painted with neon letters that screamed for attention. Not only could the public access the exhibit at any time of day, they could upload their own photos to ‘The Wall’ and share with their friends and networks.

This turn-key DIGIE product is produced end-to-end by our team including concept, interactive design, UX & UI design, engineering, fabrication, installation and project management. Security and operations were also monitored remotely by our team.

Within a few months, Væggen has been visited by more than 1.5 million patrons. Patrons viewed 12.4 million images from the museum collection and made over 500,000 contributions and shares. During its seven year lifespan, the container moved around the city to several new locations, and eventually into the physical museum.

“Gibson is much more than a provider of digital services and solutions – although a brilliant one at that. They are in essence an intellectual partner who provides the museum with access to contemporary technological facilitation of the goals and missions we set up for ourselves as a cultural institution”

Jette Sandahl, former Director of The Museum of Copenhagen

Væggen was our pioneer TouchCity™ interactive design, which led to multiple sister wall projects around the world. TouchCity™ interactive designs are enormous touch-frame smart ‘walls’ that transform 2D content into cascading, interactive 3D cityscapes. The imagery is presented in layered conceptual groupings like themes or locations. Explore our DIGIE interactive displays website for more details on the technology.
