Mobilrot shelves “tell” the story of the engineer Ove Arup

THE PROCOSS SYSTEM: A KEY PILLAR OF THE OVE ARUP AND THE PHILOSOPHY OF TOTAL DESIGN EXHIBITION AT THE DANISH ARCHITECTURE CENTER IN DENMARK

The celebrated ‘Ove Arup and the Philosophy of Total Design’ world touring exhibition organised by the Victoria and Albert Museum also visited Denmark, where the Danish Architecture Center opened its doors to welcome the magnificent projects of Ove Arup (1895-1988), the most influential engineer of the twentieth century. Running from October 11, 2018 until February 17, 2019, ‘Ove Arup and the Philosophy of Total Design’ exhibits previously unseen archive materials of the famous engineer. Mobilrot played a leading role in the layout of exhibits and the creation of the design.

Together with the architects of the London studio Dyvik Kahlen, we produced, delivered and assembled the entire interlocking Procoss shelving system for the exhibition of Ove Arup’s invaluable archive material. Our practical structure with sophisticated aesthetics is, therefore, the “key pillar” to a collection of over 150 works, including drawings, models and prototypes that come together in a meticulously organised retrospective of the prestigious English engineer. Ove Arup’s works are of inestimable historical value, and we at Mobilrot managed every last detail of the shelving, allowing visitors to explore and engage with a piece of 20th century architecture history through one of its leading names.

FURNISHINGS FOR MUSEUMS

The project was managed by our Export Manager Benedetto Zito and Senior Project Manager Jeanne Rank of the Danish Architecture Center, who kindly sent us high-resolution photos of the exhibition taken by Laura Stamer. These beautiful images were accompanied by the following letter of thanks:

Dear Benedetto,

Thank you for your fantastic support for the Arup exhibition here at the Danish Architecture Center – we love the beautiful shelves that you have made. I wish you could have been here for the opening. Please let me know if you come to Copenhagen so i can show you the exhibition.    

Thank you very much.   

All the best, Jeanne”

The successful collaboration between Mobilrot and the Danish Architecture Center for the Ove Arup and the Philosophy of Total Design exhibition led to the signing of an official partnership which allowed us to participate in the exhibition as a co-sponsor. This marvellous project has given our company a valuable opportunity to bring Mobilrot shelving to Denmark, thus expanding our experience in the spellbinding world of architecture and art.
