Challenge

How do you design an exhibition allowing for a self-determined experience for blind, deaf, mentally and physically challenged people?

Result

A foyer exhibition with various experience stations that convey Christoffel-Blindenmission’s topics in an inclusive way and give impulses for social exchange.

Value

Inclusive UX design is more than accessibility. It is a multi-sensory experience that is enriching for everyone and takes the needs of all users into account, regardless of age, gender, origin or impairment.

The Christoffel-Blindenmission (CBM) is an internationally operating development aid organization and one of Germany’s 20 largest aid organizations. Its aim is to improve the living conditions of blind, deaf, mentally and physically handicapped people on the basis of Christian values and acting preventively. Eatch was entrusted with the task of conceiving and implementing an interactive and inclusive exhibition experience for the headquarters in Bensheim.

The multi-sensory experience stations allow for a change of perspective, giving insight into living with an impairment and making CBM’s important work comprehensible.

The inclusively designed information boards give challenged visitors the possibility to inform and orient themselves self-determinedly. In addition to Braille writing, longer texts are available as audio versions, playing automatically when the headphones are picked up. Considering the hearing impaired, volume can be adjusted individually.

The interactive glass mosaic is an atmospheric element based on the Richter church window that mindfully incites to interact. Each mosaic piece is touch-sensitive and gives the user the possibility to change the light colour or draw any pattern on the wall.
