Philadelphia-based user experience and design firm Electronic Ink will be featured in an exhibit at the Museum of Modern Art starting next week.

The firm’s design exploration of 911 call center interfaces will be included in the museum’s Talk to Me: Design and the Communication between People and Objects.

After a federal study identified that significant improvements could be made to dispatcher technology, the company created an interface that emphasizes the caller, provides easy-to-use display gestures for calling action, and utilizes a dark palette built for the dark environments common to dispatch rooms.

The exhibit starts on July 24 and runs through November 7.
