In 2019, DG display showcase and the Swiss pavilion pre-conversation to understand that the Swiss pavilion mainly through the network channels and market information and other aspects of our project experience and comprehensive strength of the enterprise, while DG display showcase learned that the Swiss national pavilion itself has very rich and professional experience in museums, the number of visitors in the pavilion every month are counted in tens of thousands, so the pavilion for the museum display lighting system and the lighting environment of the entire exhibition hall.The museum has very strict requirements for the lighting system of the museum exhibits and the lighting environment of the whole exhibition hall.
During the business negotiation, the Swiss pavilion mentioned that the aging of the lighting equipment and some of the light sources are damaged, which directly affects the audience's appreciation and love of the exhibits, and the experience is extremely bad, so the lighting system of these museum cabinets needs to be renovated urgently. Especially in the area of displaying craft costumes, the audience's recognition of the color and texture of the exhibits was reduced. Despite the unparalleled exquisiteness of the exhibits, the audience suffered from not being able to see the ornamentation of the exhibits clearly, which greatly reduced their interest in visiting the museum, and they could not feel the delicate and shocking visual effect of the exhibits, and at the same time, there was no way to deeply extend the transmission of Swiss culture. Therefore, DG display showcase added some flexible and operable elements according to the demands of the Swiss Pavilion team, and redesigned the solution of integrated structure of lighting and display cases.

Third, the atmosphere lighting system: museum display showcase internal atmosphere lighting is the most direct impact on the exhibits of lighting, ultra-high color rendering index can make the exhibits color restoration pure, saturated, transparent and refreshing, so that the museum display case of cultural relics and art exhibits more pleasing to the eye, reproduce the history and art of the bright, comprehensive enhance the display effect of art.
