The exhibition presented the most interesting examples of traditional Japanese dolls from the private collection of The Museum of Dolls in Pilzno. The exposition was divided into four thematic zones maintaining the feeling of open space at the same time. The essential elements of the scenography were light wooden construction and printed textile sheets which referenced to the Japanese esthetics and carried essential exhibition informations. The characteristic part of the project was created by transparent circles completing the graphic composition and protecting valuable objects. The color selection and smooth shapes of graphic composition gave the scenography lightness and minimalistic character.
