Goppion and the display cases that protect the history of Islamic Art Imagery

Goppion has created, for the Albukhary Foundation of The British Museum, sixty wall display cases, island display cases and table display cases of great dimensions and of a particularly high structural complexity.

Some elements, shared by all the display cases, are the large dimensions (the island display cases have an exhibition volume of 28 m3) and the breadth of the parts that can be opened. All the display cases have a mechanical opening system. In the wall display cases the hinged doors are suspended, so as to prevent possible deflection of the plates throughout time.
