Conservation is not just about storing objects or documents, it is about protecting knowledge and information which is sealed within those treasures. History extends every day and so do history collections. In a world in which natural resources and space are scarce assets this makes it important to think about efficient use of every single m2 available. Did you know that you could reduce your storage space by up to 75%? Less space used for storage means more room for your collection, a decrease in costs per m2 and a substantial positive impact on your footprint.
Typically up to 90% of an art collection is stored in the depot. Smart space creating storage systems enable seamless integration of secure, sustainable storage with increased visibility of the collection. A creative way to show more objects, enabling the public to also discover the hidden treasures of every collection.
From wooden doors to carriages, from books to vases, from weaponry to typewriters, history collections are often defined by their variety in size, weight and the material of the objects. How to efficiently store all of these whilst keeping every object safe and accessible? We’ll be happy to help you!
