SOUTHEAST ASIAN CERAMICS MUSEUM

Viphavadee-Rangsit Road, Bangkok

Located half sunken underground in front of Surat Osathanugrah Library at the center of Bangkok University Rangsit Campus, the museum was built to house over 4,000 pieces of invaluable ancient ceramics donated by the university founder, Mr. Surat Osathanugrah. This is one of the most extensive collections of Southeast Asian Ceramics in the region with special emphasis on Sukhothai era. In the design process, utmost importance was given to how to display the piece of art, how to provide lighting, and in some cases, how to let the visitor touch and feel the object of art. The designers worked closely with the curator to plan the display, sequentially letting the visitor absorb and learn about the history and beauty of the ceramics. The team even visited Japan to see over 10 museums dedicated to ceramics to learn the art of display and good museum design. An archive room was also set up where a more serious scholar can do research on the subject. To achieve good result, a number of full size display mock-ups were built to ensure display quality and all necessary details well hidden to let the focus be on the object of art. Lighting design was carefully considered with dim but ample light level for general area for safety while spot lighting focusing on the object allows the visitors to see every details on the ceramics yet light sources hidden to avoid glare. Carpet was laid throughout to absorb noise to allow undisturbed viewing experience.
