Who we are

Casson Mann are museum, exhibition and interior designers.

We transform space, content and media into beautiful, engaging environments. Our clients include many of the world's leading cultural
institutions.

We provide full services for:
• museum design
• design of permanent galleries, temporary and touring exhibitions
• interior design / interior architecture
• interpretive strategies
• interpretation production
• concepts and art direction for all multimedia installations
• masterplanning

We act as lead consultant, creating bespoke teams for each project. We brief, manage and creatively direct content developers, writers, graphic, lighting sound and software designers, hardware, structural and services engineers, as
well as artists, filmmakers and other specialists as necessary.

We are known for the high quality of our installations and thoughtful design. We create beautiful spaces, in which everything contributes to a singular vision – the architecture, fixtures and fittings, the choice of materials and enhancements of light and sound. Visitors find themselves immersed physically and emotionally.

They are encouraged to spend time, to explore further, come again. Our projects use the full range of interpretative techniques to inspire visitors – from stunning artefact displays to sensitive soundscapes, from digital projections to dressing up. Our interest is in finding the right solution for the client, the story and for the audience we wish to engage.

Each project is different. We never arrive with a pre-arranged set of solutions as our designs take root from the content and collections. As we understand the stories, we develop the physical journey for visitors. We will think about pace, about the need for moments of intensity, or relaxation and rest within the
experience.

What we do

Casson Mann delight in designing complex environments, whole museums, temporary and touring exhibitions, masterplans and interpretative strategies.

We work happily across the arts, museum, hospitality and retail sectors.

We adore creating thrilling interactive experiences through physical, sensory and digital media.

We have an instinctive understanding of clients' pressures, priorities and ambitions.

We enjoy choosing teams of expert specialists.

We like innovating, adapting and applying new technologies.

We relish telling compelling stories that bring objects to life. We love igniting imaginations.

‘Casson Mann refuse to be defined by exhibition type. They operate confidently across the whole spectrum of exhibition making…. from formal, object-rich galleries to immersive interactive environments and everything in between. They consistently create intelligent, sociable, eloquent and beautiful, powerfully memorable environments – always well crafted and recognizable but never repetitive, each responding directly to the content and message-making briefs established by their clients.’
