Discovering PERSPEX® Acrylic: A Museum Favourite
A series of display cases created for Tutankhamun artefacts
Inplas Fabrications have produced a series of display cases crafted from PERSPEX® acrylic for the Discovering Tutankhamun Exhibition at the Ashmolean Museum, University of Oxford.
A wide range of bespoke table-top and wall-mounted display cases were created in 6, 8 and 10mm PERSPEX® Clear to suit each of the artefacts, along with a series of laser-cut curved countertops for corner displays.
PERSPEX® Clear was chosen due to its impressive viewing clarity and its superior light transmission to glass, making it a museum favourite.
Discovering Tutankhamun reflects the excitement of the discovery of the tomb by archaeologists Howard Carter and Lord Carnarvon. Including loans from the Metropolitan in New York, the British Museum and other collections, its previously unseen treasures are Carter's own original notes, drawings, magnificent glass plate photographs, and illustrations he commissioned of some of the most beautiful objects, as they were found.
Take a look at more case studies which harness the creative potential of PERSPEX® acrylic.
