The Frameless Case of Zone Display Cases

The Frameless Case of ZDC was awarded at the Red Dot Design Award

During the famous Red Dot Design Award’s Ceremony held July 9th 2018, in Berlin, Germany, Zone Display Cases won the highest distinction with its most recent creation, the Frameless case. 

The Red Dot Design Award is an international competition that rewards the best product design. Design businesses from 59 countries have presented more than 6,300 innovations, more than ever before.

69 designers winners 

The 39 jury members, among the top design experts, have pooled their expertise to reward the bests in the industry. Only 69 designers received the top award in the competition, the “The Best of the Best” contest.

“Best of the best” in the category “Design of interior elements.”

The jury’s criteria were based on the progress of innovation, performance and product quality.

An impressive diversity of interior design ideas fell into this category. Whether carpets, stairs, windows, and even photo frames.

Our display case has attracted the recognition of judges by its fascinating purism and the range of its museum features.

Winning in the “Best of the Best” category, Zone Display Cases confirms its position as a leader in high-quality display cases.

The Frameless display cases, a vision of creativity and innovation.

Objects or exhibits that are presented in a display case are “made visible” in a unique way. The free-standing frameless display case astonishes viewers with its purist design at first glance. Adopting an innovative approach, this five-sided glass case has been designed with no frame at the top and a door that is invisible.

Made from 100% recycled material

The glass case rests on an ultra-thin steel base that provides the needed strength and stability. The underlying material concept is path-breaking: the construction has been built with 100 percent recyclable, high-quality materials such as glass and steel.

Modern design

Produced in a wide range of sizes, this modern series of glass display cases evokes the maxims of simplicity and lightness through a design of refined lines paired with a minimum of visible components.

Although designed without any visible opening system, this case can easily and comfortably be operated by one person alone. Assembled with very high precision and within extremely narrow tolerances, the frameless case meets museum industry conservation standards.

Optimal preservation

Targeted at museum applications, the cases can be fitted with an intelligent system comprising dimmable embedded lighting, motion sensors, as well as temperature, humidity and light monitoring (LUX). Thus, they offer highly valuable features to help maintain optimal preservation requirements for museum exhibits.

The Frameless charms the great museums all over the world

National Museum of the American Indian, Washington, D.C., the USA, “Americans,” January 2018–2022

“American Indian images, names, and stories infuse American history and contemporary life.

The images are everywhere, from the Land O’Lakes butter maiden to the Cleveland Indians’ mascot, and from classic Westerns and cartoons to episodes of Seinfeld and South Park. American Indian names are everywhere too, from state, city, and street names to the Tomahawk missile. And the familiar historical events of Pocahontas’s life, the Trail of Tears, and the Battle of Little Bighorn remain popular reference points in everyday conversations.

Americans highlight the ways in which American Indians have been part of the nation’s identity since before the country began. It will surround visitors with images, delve into the three stories, and invite them to begin a conversation about why this phenomenon exists.

Pervasive, powerful, at times demeaning, the images, names, and stories reveal the deep connection between Americans and American Indians as well as how Indians have been embedded in unexpected ways in the history, pop culture and identity of the United States.”—https://americanindian.si.edu/explore/exhibitions/item/?id=957
