With great pleasure we undertake exhibition and museum designs. We provide the complete conceptual design and management of exhibitions (as for example in the Schnütgen Museum in Cologne), but we are also happy to cover parts of it. For example, we have reviewed the protective glazing systems at the Metropolitan Museum, New York, and advised on a redesign for the display of the stained glass. At the Westfälisches Landesmuseum, we designed exhibition showcases for stained glass windows; in Freiburg, we organized art transports and supervised the customs clearance.
We are happy to assist you with advice and support. Please feel free to call us at any time without obligation.
