Design, materials & internals • Lighting • Glass • Multimedia



The showcase design and materials should complement the architecture as well as the objects inside. The selected materials are a very important aspect of showcase design, both esthetically and functionally.

There are different internal elements that can be considered for use within different kinds of showcases to help present objects of varying size and character, adding to the visitor experience.

Through working with various architects and interior designers as well as layout teams from the museums, we have developed many different solutions to position objects closer to the visitor within the showcase.

Transparent as well as solid elements can help to create an interesting depth and style of presentation within the cases.


The extra-white glass used in our showcases is of high optical purity and low-iron content.
Depending on your situation, we can advise the option of using anti-reflective glass. Utilizing anti-reflective glass maximizes transparency and reduces reflections, thus guaranteeing an optimal viewing experience.


Lighting is crucial in presenting your artifacts and artworks. It offers the opportunity to lift your exhibition to the next level and when executed well, enhances the visitor experience. Moreover, effective lighting helps telling the story of your collection. Therefore, it is crucial to allocate sufficient attention and resources to this challenging and complex topic.

The choice of lighting depends on many factors:

  • Layout of the exhibition
  • Intended effect of the lighting & overall design
  • Sensitivity of the displayed objects
  • Type of objects
  • Focus on using mixed media
  • Available budget
  • Maintenance

There is never a ‘perfect’ solution, but merely a balancing act to be performed between all these different parameters.

Over the years we have surrounded ourselves with reliable and qualitative partners. We are ready to offer advice whenever it’s needed.


In order to enhance visitor experience, one might consider the use of multimedia in the exhibition. This can be applied in many ways, such as projections, interactive applications or hand-held devices that can provide additional and specific information to the public.
