FURNITURE THROUGH THE YEARS

The new Dr Susan Weber Gallery tells the story of furniture design and production spanning the past 600 years.

The gallery, which is located alongside the Ceramics Study Galleries, focuses on questions of form, function and techniques of construction and decoration in the creation of furniture since the 15th century. It has been supported by the American Friends of the Victoria and Albert Museum through the generosity of Dr Susan Weber. Click Netherfield engineered a unique and contemporary suite of monolithic showcases for the gallery in line with the client's design intent. 12 minimalist-style virtually frameless cases, all featuring mitred glass edges and beautiful white stone-effect plinths and dress panels. 8 of the cases featured motorised vertical opening mechanisms which can be controlled remotely, thus allowing easier access for staff.
