Situation

The Spellbound Exhibition in Oxford confronts its visitors with more than eight hundred years of magic history. For its fascinating objects, the museum wanted non-toxic textiles to take up the exhibition’s theme and underline to the rooms’ atmosphere with their appearance.

Solution

Shiny yarns lend ALU NET a softly draped grid effect, creating mystical moments with two different hues on the displays. The non-toxic UNISONO fabric with its even texture is used as a substrate for the exhibits, perfectly staged by three different hues providing a safe and beautiful environment for the great variety of materials in the Ashmolean exhibition, from books to metals, from ceramics to organic matter.
