Penn Museum

DG takes you to discuss the importance of museum showcase design and its impact on the display effect of collections

Penn Museum


Project Briefing and Building Overview: The Penn Museum respectfully acknowledges that it is located in Lenapehoking, the ancestral and spiritual home of the Unami Lenape. The Penn Museum is a comprehensive museum with a collection of approximately 1 million cultural relics, mainly exhibiting cultural relics from Greece, Rome, Asia, Africa, and the Americas. Since 1887, we've been revealing our shared humanity across continents and millennia. The museum charts a course to find one's place in the arc of human history. They are committed to telling powerful stories that emerge from our digs and research around the world. The museum's mission is to serve as a center for inquiry and the ongoing exploration of human nature, guided by ethical standards and practices, at the University of Pennsylvania, the regional, national and global communities. We do this by conducting research, curating collections, creating learning opportunities, contextualizing and telling stories, and creating experiences for people to engage with those stories.

Museums, as treasures of human history and culture, are bridges connecting the past, present and future. Museum showcases, as protectors and exhibitors of collections, are a key part of this bridge. This article will explore the importance of museum showcase design and its impact on the presentation of collections.

1. What is the design concept of the DG Museum showcase?

The design concept of DG museum showcases should be based on the trinity principle of "protection, display and aesthetics". First of all, the design of the display cabinet must ensure effective protection of the collection, including preventing physical damage, chemical corrosion, radiation and other factors. Secondly, the display cabinet should optimize the display effect and present the value and story of the collection to the audience through reasonable layout, lighting and display techniques. Finally, the design of the display cabinet also needs to consider the aesthetic experience, bringing pleasant visual enjoyment to the audience and reflecting the unique temperament of the museum.

2. What are the design elements of museum display cabinets?

(1)Material selection: The material of the display cabinet has an important impact on the protection and display effect of the collection. Materials such as glass, metal, and wood each have their own characteristics, and they need to be selected according to the characteristics and display needs of the collection. For example, glass display cabinets can provide clear visual effects, but care must be taken to prevent ultraviolet damage to the collection.

(2)Layout design: Reasonable layout design can highlight the theme of the collection and guide the audience's sight. By adjusting the lighting, background, labels and other elements of the showcase, you can create a richly layered and focused display effect.

(3)Lighting design: Lighting design is one of the key elements of museum showcases. Proper lighting can highlight the details and colors of a collection while avoiding damage to the collection. Generally speaking, cool-colored light sources are more suitable for museum lighting. At the same time, care should be taken to avoid direct sunlight from directly irradiating the collections.

(4)Display techniques: Museum showcases have various display techniques, including static display, dynamic display, interactive display, etc. According to the characteristics of the collection and the needs of the audience, choosing the appropriate display method can improve the display effect and attract the audience's attention.

3. What is the future trend of DG museum showcase design?

With the continuous development of technology, the design of DG Display Showcase museum showcases is also constantly innovating and progressing. Digital and intelligent technologies have brought new possibilities to the design of museum display cabinets. In the future, museum showcases will pay more attention to the application of human-computer interaction, virtual reality, augmented reality and other technologies to enhance the audience's visiting experience and achieve a deep integration of the value of the collection and the needs of the audience.

In short, museum showcase design is an important link in museum operations. It carries the tasks of protecting collections, displaying collections, and leading audiences. Excellent design can fully display the value and story of the collection to the audience, and at the same time bring good operational effects to the museum. Therefore, museums should pay attention to the design of display cabinets and continuously improve the design quality to adapt to the needs of the times and the expectations of the audience. In a museum or art gallery, display cabinets are the core of displaying precious collections to the public. DG Display Showcase manufacturers aim to create a safe and engaging display environment for your collections. We are not only manufacturers, but also guardians who protect and appreciate treasures.
