ArtRatio was commissioned by a private London-based collector to build a 2m long steel table, fitted out with VariGuard SPD SmartGlass (TM) to exhibit original works by Sir Isaac Newton.
Perfect for rare books and manuscripts, the table illuminates the displayed objects only when someone is present.
The table’s real-time CMS limits light exposure damage based on the fragility of the collection.
ArtRatio delivered a customised smart glass table to the Nationalmuseum of Sweden in Oct 2018. The table houses the oldest items in the museums collection: 15th century Books of Hours which normally would not be exhibited due to their light sensitivity.
In 2016, ArtRatio delivered a customised smart glass table to a private collector based in London to house an original antique map portraying the 1815 Battle of Waterloo. The map was drawn up after the battle.
ArtRatio exhibited a 2-volume book by 18th century Spanish author, Antonio José Cavanilles in a smart glass table at the Archaeological Museum of Alicante, Spain.
ArtRatio supplied a smart glass case to the Spanish Guitar Museum to protect an original Torres guitar, hand-made in 1888. The item is from a private collection.
ArtRatio conducted light measurement levels on the Royal Town Charter for the Spanish Town Council of Pinoso (Alicante). The Charter was signed by King Ferdinand VII of Spain.
