Goppion launches new Catalogue of Museum Exhibit Components
Press Release – 29 Nov 2022
Goppion Technology is delighted to announce the publication of its new catalogue:
The Goppion Review of Museum Exhibit Components
Goppion has built a world-class reputation for its bespoke, conservation-grade display cases over the past 70 years, but this latest catalogue represents a first for the company. Using a rich selection of case studies, it presents the first comprehensive review of exhibit furnishings and components that Goppion creates. These exhibition components are conceived according to the same core principles that guide the expert fabrication of Goppion’s display cases: conservation, legibility and space.
- Walls, partitions and headers
- Platforms, bases and tables
- Protective barriers
- Av, Multimedia interactives, cabinets and kiosks
- Physical interactive and immersive exhibit components
- Benches and seating
- Retrofitting existing cases
- Object mounts
- Display cradles
Collectively, the survey of exhibition components and furnishings represents the culmination of Goppion’s unrivaled expertise, amassed through many decades of experience. Example case studies are richly illustrated with photography and diagrams throughout, offering both ravishing glimpses of completed display spaces, and analysis of technical challenges and solutions – for subjects both ancient and modern.
Featured projects that show the range of Goppion’s expertise, ingenuity and sheer passion for creating the very best visitor experiences include:
- Radically different styles of walls – from the painted wall panels of the Museo dell’Opera del Duomo in Florence to the self-supporting partitions at the Louvre Lens.
- Pedestals for displaying objects and specimens – such as the cylindrical, anti-seismic pedestal that supports the Pietà Rondanini, Michelangelo’s last, unfinished work, at Castello Sforzesco in Milan, Italy.
- Retrofitting existing cases of historic collections in notable museums such as Turin’s Egyptian Museum and the Vatican’s Anima Mundi Museum.
- Barriers protecting cultural treasures – including world-famous paintings such as the Mona Lisa at The Louvre, Leonardo’s Last Supper in Milan and Michelangelo’s David in Florence.
- Display cradles – such as the one supporting the 1,200-year-old, lavishly decorated Book of Kells in Dublin.
The Goppion Review of Museum Exhibit Components amply demonstrates that we remain at the industry’s forefront, dedicated to improvement and refinement, and setting the highest standards. We continue our journey working closely with prestigious museums, galleries, libraries and other cultural and scientific institutions all around the globe.
