GKN is a British multinational Automotive and Aerospace components company, with its headquarters in Redditch, Worcestershire.
Mixing a modular display system with some bespoke cabinets and plinths, Icon designed a clean and smart environment that tells the story of the company’s development whilst exhibiting its range of products.
A clever design using arched plinths (shown below) allows the exhibition arrangement to be changed, just by sliding out the plinths, to allow the team to highlight whichever products they need to focus on.
Icon also installed a dedicated health and safety demonstration and meeting room, to allow visitors and employees on the site to be supplied the right equipment and fully informed of the company’s procedures.
GKN’s Innovation Centre is a central hub within its own factory space for all the areas of GKN’s business to be showcased, to illustrate GKN’s story and how the business has developed.
As well as providing an exhibition area and meeting space, it’s also used for educational purposes, being the area mainly used for briefings regarding health and safety for anyone visiting or working on site.
