For the Orsay Museum Treasures of the France Pavilion, Relicase designed the showcases used for exhibit display for safety, protection and display effect. Due to their priceless value of the exhibit, we focus on security, protection and display effect on showcase. The inner atmosphere was totally followed by The Optimal Standard of HQE, and international criterion of a large museum, besides the current safety code.
