The Fitzwilliam Museum

Situation

To honour Degas’ 100th death anniversary, the Fitzwilliams Museum hosted an exhibition.
Sorted by topic, it shows the variety of Degas’ work—from nude drawings, pastels and watercolours to sculptures and different types of print—coupled with his very pown approach to landscape painting.
The Fitzwilliams Museum collection is among the most comprehensive and prestigious in the UK.

Solution

To create a fitting backdrop for Degas’ works of art, the decorative ULTRA fabric was chosen for lining the display cabinets. Thanks to its organically-certified production process, ULTRA is the ideal fabric to surround masterpieces because all dyes are tested for harmful substances and Oddy-tested.
