Wayfinding system for Oslo’s new Munch Museum

The Endpoint team continues to work on the all-new Munch Museum – in the Norwegian capital, Oslo – in collaboration with North Design who is spearheading the museum’s new visual identity.

Our technical design team is delighted to be working closely with North Design to create a simple and effective wayfinding and signage system for another leading cultural destination. Having collaborated in the past with them at the Barbican and the Southbank Centre, this exciting new challenge will only strengthen our relationship.

As the world’s largest collection of Norwegian artist Edvard Munch's work – famed for his 1893 painting ‘The Scream’ – the museum provides insight into the artist as a pioneer of the Expressionist movement.

The museum was formerly housed in eastern Oslo but is moving to this new purpose built space on the waterfront beside the Opera House. Designed by Spanish architecture studio, Herreros, the new Munch Museum features 4,500 square meters of gallery space, spread across 13 floors.

As well as being home to over 200 works of Munch’s art, the museum will also play host to exhibitions from other world-renowned artists; and will also serve local community interests with its restaurant, café, concert hall and cinema.

The Munch Museum's goal is to create a meeting place for everyone to enjoy all types of cultural occasions. It aims to broaden perceptions of what a museum offers and create new opportunities.
