Military history on parade

An exacting set of requirements delivered with our customary military precision - what else would you expect.

Over the last few years Danish exhibition designer studio Kvorning Design and Communication has designed and refurbished numerous permanent exhibitions in Scandinavia - and in Norway in particular.

Having a track record of working with such a diverse range of exhibitions together with being a long term partner with ClickNetherfield, Kvorning Design and Communication was the uniquely qualified candidate when The Norwegian Armed Forces. Museum were looking for a reliable supplier for the design and production of showcases. Offering elegant, frameless showcases combined with high class environmental control secured the design studio a three -year framework agreement. now get a close view of the sensitive, old exhibits of From the War to Nation -collection (depicting Norwegian war history ofthe 19th century) and see the delicate exhibits of the exhibition. The War Cross - Norway€€žÂ¢s highest honour offering a close up view of war crosses and personal artefacts belonging to some of the 281 people who have received the medal of honour. As of last year the museum features the exhibition 62 Days €€œ The Battle of Norway which gives visitors an impression of the first 62 days of Word War II as seen from a Norwegian perspective. In this exhibition steel walls surge to and fro, creating a bewildering and threatening landscape, probably resembling the experience many Norwegians had during the Spring of 1940.

Bespoke showcases emerge from the steel walls presenting small and large exhibits alongside texts, images and small displays with additional imagery and information. The new exhibitions feature a lot of delicate exhibits that demand the right air exchange rates and environmental control. At the same time the museum wanted glass joints to secure good visibility across all exhibits. 'We are very pleased with the new showcases. Doors are easy to open and it's easy to change light bulbs for instance', says Einar Lepperod, Curator and Lead of Exhibitions of The Norwegian Armed Forces Museum. "We were comparing environmental control, frameless glass designs and price, and ClickNetherfield in liaison with Kvorning Design and Communication turned out to be the best solution. I have already recommended the showcases to colleagues at other museums", Einar Lepperod concludes.
