Portable Gallery is a lightweight demountable gallery designed by architects/tutors Chee-Kit Lai and Max Dewdney, a commissioned by UCL Museums & Collections. It is made of a series of modular components which enables easy installation in a host of public realm venues for UCL Museum's outreach programme. The gallery is designed to display one museum artefact at a time and can accommodate up to three people. The gallery is made of composite lightweight recycled paper honey-comb panels, which are laminated with a tiled mirror finish on the internal surfaces. The interior creates an illusion much larger than its physical size. The five sided mirror surfaces also allow visitors to see the museum object from all angles within the reflection of the gallery walls. The object in turn is multiplied infinitely within the space. Although the space is only 2.2 cubic metre it has the illusion of a much larger interior.
