Each display case is made to precise specifications, from material and colour to the type of glass or plastic used.
The large layered cases are made from powder-coated aluminium and polycarbonate. Each layer fits the next perfectly, and hidden supports run through the piece.
The smaller black display cases have no visible fixings. Each shelving support is attached by small internal fixings, and the piece is clad using a system whereby each pieces ties to the next. The final plate is held on magnetically, completing the clean finished look. The glass used is non-reflective and low iron – almost invisible to the naked eye. This puts all the focus on the art work within.
