Exhibition Showcases of National Gallery of Singapore

Showcases were painstakingly designed and crafted to suit specific galleries. For example, an almost 5m long Mapcase, consisting of four separate showcases, was created within a 2.5 ton metal casing. Various compartments for concealing the functional equipment such as fibre optic lighting systems, semi-automatic soft-closing mechanisms, passive Artsorb ventilators, electronic controls for opening and even a table-top touch-screen were incorporated into this multi-tier assembly. 

Anti-reflective glass was assembled and bonded at site with fully mitred joints.
