Custom Museum Display Cases

There’s an art to designing experiences that make visitors stop and stare.

Amplify The Art And Stories That Matter

Showcase Art. Preserve History. Enlighten Visitors.

Our story began in 1979 with the commission of one museum case exhibit. We’ve since collaborated with 40 museums on 1,250 cases that protect and showcase the stories that shaped the present day.

Amplify the art and stories that matter with custom museum display cases designed by seasoned craftsmen.

Every Detail Shines Through Craftsmanship

Purposeful craftsmanship compliments the museum experience. Present your collections in the best light through designs that leave no detail left unturned.

Design

Intricate engineering goes into crafting museum experiences to illustrate history and create an interactive experience for visitors.

Fabrication

No exhibit scale is too big to dream up installations that exceed the expectations of even the most renowned architects.

Installation

History is safe in our hands. From life-size unframed glass to a 500-pound piece of limestone, we’ll do the heavy lifting from start to finish.

Our Work

Modernizing Art With The Art Institute

In collaboration with a Pritzker Prize-winning architect, our team engineered the design of custom LED fiber optic lighting igniters and the installation of unframed glass to create one of today’s best modern art facilities for the Art Institute of Chicago.
