Display Cases

October 18 & 19, 2016

New Iceland Heritage Museum, Gimli

Display cases, if well designed, can be used to control the environmental conditions for valuable and vulnerable collections, and can help reduce the risks of damage (e.g. from light, climate, theft and vandalism) when objects are on display. For designers, they provide the opportunity to highlight particular objects and to tell a story.
