SALLE DU COL DE CYGNE
Château de Fontainebleau
The Castle of Fontainebleau is one of the largest French castles and has hosted many monarchs and generals, from Louis IV to Napoleon I. A true work of art, the medieval palace is an example of Renaissance architectural style and decoration. Located just outside Paris, the building has been listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, attracting hundreds of visitors every year.
Among the palace exhibits is a collection of rare porcelain artifacts, such as Chinese vases and other objects of everyday use.
MUEVO undertook the creation of a large “L” shaped freestanding display case for housing the porcelain items, customized so as to meet the particular needs of the project.
The site’s specifications posed an extra level of difficulty, seeing as the wall could not be utilized to anchor the large showcase and rigidly support the opening of its 3x3m glass doors. MUEVO addressed this technical issue by implementing solutions with minimum visual impact, such as a fully concealed wheel system.
