Arab Museum of Modern Art

Modern Arab Art gets a Luxurious New Home

The world's first museum devoted entirely to modern Arab art and creativity opened its doors in Qatar recently.

Located in the outskirts of Doha in Education City, the building was previously a school but was impressively redesigned for the museum by French architect Jean-Francois Bodin. Modern construction on the facade is contrasting with the rest of the original building, but they are still in harmony. The exterior of the building and everything (rooms, furniture) within is linked by the colour white. ClickNetherfield were delighted to be called upon to supply Mathaf with showcases, providing a total of 20 bespoke solutions for the project. The opening of Mathaf in late 2010 follows the opening of the Museum of Islamic Art in 2008, and sees Qatar fast turning into the cultural hub of the Middle East.
