Exhibition Mounts for M Shed Museum

With only a few days to go till the opening of this important social history exhibition. SMA design were asked if they could assist the in-house museum exhibition design team to display exhibition objects. These objects required museum quality individual object mounts.

Unfortunately all our exhibition mount makers were already fully committed. However wanting to help out one of our museum designers who had many years object mounting experience, came to the rescue.

All museum exhibition mounts were made on site and in the museums own workshops. The designs were both higher in quality and more athetic in nature than the museum was use to. Plus they reflected the exacting requirements that National museums insist on to the joy of the exhibition designer.

Initially the M Shed Museum requested a 3 day on site visit to produce the object mounts. However as with lots of exhibitions additional objects were found that still required exhibition mounts so this was extended for a further 2 days.

SMA design were delighted to be able to assist this friendly and talented in house exhibition design team to open the exhibition doors on time.
