  • Designed for museum environments, this ingenious frameless case has everything that conservators and exhibit designers can ever wish for. Its all-glass frameless design is the ideal solution to avoid cast shadows and highlight the beauty of the artifact. Always seeking for the optimal environmental conditions to display their sensitive collection, museums will be amazed with this climate-controlled display case that offers monitoring possibilities and highly sophisticated technological features. The ultimate and ambitious goal behind this innovative concept is to provide the most invisible, yet highly secured case, that will draw all attention to its content in an unprecedented way.

  • We are the first design and manufacturing firm to come up with such an accurate and unique design that hides and conceals any electrical or mechanical component. Even the lighting is embedded in the glass! The opening mechanism has been completely reinvented to provide a case with a full-access door, without visible hinges or locks. The base has also been reduced to its minimum while integrating highly-sophisticated wi-fi monitoring equipment such as sensors, alarms and lighting controls. The assembly itself is without a doubt the most challenging part due to the extreme precision requirements between each component.

  • Any designers would hope to present artifacts in the most invisible display structures. Today’s new modern architectural concepts call for contemporary, pure and environmental designs. The new frameless cases have caught attention from important design firms and have earned us a first international project in Dubai. Although it is new, several establishments have already purchased these cases while other world-known institutions have expressed significant interest. Made with 100% recyclable or recycled materials, this innovative product, merged with our exceptional know-how and expertise, contributes to the evolution of the museum industry and brings our company to a whole new level.
