La Guilde Canadienne des Métiers d'Art, Montreal, QC, Canada
La Guilde, historical gallery and museum institution of Canadian art, has been preserving, promoting and encouraging fine crafts for more than one hundred years.
Specializing in Inuit and First Nations art, La Guilde is a non-profit organization that is comprised of a permanent collection, one of the most influential in Canada, historically and culturally rich archives, an educational program with a broad outreach, and a gallery which draws together works by renowned and emerging artists.
La Guilde was looking for an economical solution to display their art pieces while avoiding visitors to touch and possibly damage the objects.
Most items being up for sale in the gallery, they needed highly accessible display cases with the possibility to move and store them and set them up in various configurations for changing exhibitions.
Zone Display Cases provided a series of modular cases which dimensions were customized to the gallery space. Cases were fitted with removable shelving systems, solid back walls and plinths to accommodate a variety of objects.
Built with ultra-clear laminated glass, these extremely elegant cases finely blend with the neutral colors of the modern-looking gallery. Table cases were also supplied to accommodate smaller objects.
