Modular and designed for easy disassembly, the glass display case can be taken apart for space-saving storage – making it suitable, among other things, for temporary exhibitions in museums. Setting up and dismantling it takes next to no time, because assembly only involves screwing horizontal profiles together; the vertical edges of the glass panes are mitred so that they are in direct contact with one another. The result is a frameless, virtually dematerialised glass cabinet with nothing to distract the viewer’s eye from the exhibits. The extremely slender horizontal profiles are just 10 millimetres high and glued flush with the glass panels. The display cases can be supplemented with a specially developed climate-control module to protect sensitive exhibits.
It doesn’t get more slender and filigree than this! Visually, the display case is barely there at all – every detail of the design has been thought through and optimised. Thanks to the modular concept, it’s also quick to assemble and adapt – a major benefit, not just for temporary exhibitions.
