custom fabrication

Curatorial Assistance Art and Exhibition Services
Our workshop in Old Town Pasadena, California

A successful exhibition is an immersive experience that takes us into the world of the art and enables the discovery of new ideas and experiences. Our philosophy in creating and fabricating for the exhibit environment is to provide the appropriate technical solutions for the art presented so that it is preserved and secure by means invisible to the experience itself.



Slot Packing   CUSTOM CRATE INTERIORS

Custom interiors for crates can be configured in a wide variety of packing and storage solutions. Here, smooth gliding pull-out drawers are built to and lined with a form-fit cavity for optimal object protection.

This example shows the ArtCrate configured as a custom housing for the Academy Awards "Oscar" statue their their delivery to the ceremony stage before presentation to its honorees.



Custom Cavity Packing   HINGE-TOP VITRINE

Custom fabrication for artifact display involves creating a special kind of cabinetry. Display cases or vitrines are designed in virtually any size, shape, and configuration to support the aesthetic presentation of the artwork while managing for security and conservation. This vitrine shows a discreetly-hinged acrylic top that locks to secure against potential tampering. The versatile design provides for two different display options: an angled backboard for the optimal display of objects such as books or works on paper, or, with the board removed, the space can accommodate flat-seated objects.



Custom Drawer Packing   DISPLAY STANDS

Architectural, furniture and exhibition design experience is combined with custom metal and stone fabrication to create signage that is both elegant and durable even under the most extreme weather conditions.

Suspension Frame Packing   PEDESTAL FRAME

As a work of art in themselves, custom pedestals and pedestal frame-stands are handcrafted by our museum-trained staff for the elegant display of your art in the free-standing spaces of a gallery. Secured by acrylic covers but easily disassembled using security tools, our art pedestals fit snugly into an ArtCrate for their safe transportation.
