The Problem with Museum Visitors






“There Are More Museums In The United States Than There Are Starbucks And McDonalds — Combined.”


— The Washington Post













What if we could bridge the gap between observing and doing, and slow down the museum experience to allow time for reflection?










Winsor & Newton and museum Branding


ictus could be customized and branded for each museum using a color palette specific to the museum


Modular System For Quick Circulation


ictus is composed of 4 parts, each can be taken out separately for cleaning and replacement, making it easy for museum staff to prepare ictus for the next vistor
