Jeff Koons - Private Collection
Our design team were thrilled to create a bespoke shelf and acrylic display case for a limited edition ‘balloon dog’ by Jeff Koons. This 3D fine porcelain object is extremely delicate with a sensitive reflective surface that can mark or scratch easily when touched. Our goal was to design a presentation solution which would protect the sculpture whilst still allowing it to be viewed and enjoyed from diverse angles by the collector.
A slim, minimal support shelf was cut, joined and sanded to a smooth finish by our skilled wood mill team before being sprayed to a crisp, white finish. As the collector was particularly concerned about keeping the artwork safe from his young family, our installation technicians developed a unique system to securely attach the shelf to the wall and lock it into position, ensuring it will not come loose even if knocked. This support system is completely invisible to viewers, creating the impression that the design floats against the wall. An acrylic cover slides over the shelf and locks firmly into place, protecting the artwork from harmful dust particles, airborne pollutants and UV light.
Display shelves of this nature can be created to house almost any 3-dimensional object. For more information, please contact a member of our team.
