'Closed Worlds,' Exhibition Design

  • Closed Worlds
    Identity System, Custom Typography, Exhibition Design and Publication Design
  • What do outer space capsules, submarines, and office buildings have in common? Each was conceived as a closed system, a self-sustaining physical environment that is set apart from its surroundings and uses its own matter and energy to function. Closed Worlds is a new exhibition at the Storefront for Art and Architecture in New York that presents 41 living prototypes for these ecologically regenerative systems. Natasha Jen and her team have created an innovative exhibition design for Closed Worlds that is a closed system in itself, complete with its own custom typeface, display methodology and organizational structure.
