The cases offer maximal access to their interior by means of a special opening system: the glass panels move apart, thanks to motors in the base and light box, dividing the case into two parts. Equipped with LED spotlights fixed to the soffit and four removable LED light bars along the corners, each display case has a highly flexible, dimmable lighting system. Removable vertical panels divide the case interior into two sections, accommodating very small objects as well as large objects on one side, and their captions on the other. This perfectly serves the headline of the opening exhibit “What on Earth?” by presenting a rare object with a playful question to the viewer on one side, then giving the answer on the other side.

Since the summer of 2010 the restored rotunda has become home to eight freestanding display cases manufactured by GLASBAU HAHN.
Simon Adlam, the director of exhibition production and designer of the display cases, had specific demands on the frameless all-glass showcases: “I want(ed) 11 feet of hanging glass in earthquake country! It’s a major accomplishment.” He points out that “Angelenos want to be bathed in light”, even in a museum showing bones and fossils. Visitors want glamour, and they find it with these elegant architectural glass cases.

The completely refurbished Augustinermuseum reopened, presenting its treasures in special display cases by HAHN.
Augustinermuseum, Freiburg
Germany, 2010
The completely refurbished Augustinermuseum reopened, presenting its treasures in special display cases by HAHN.
In March 2010 the Augustinermuseum in Freiburg was re-opened to present its collection dating from medieval times to the 19th century, inside newly designed rooms and museum cases manufactured by GLASBAU HAHN.
The Architect Prof. Christoph Mäckler, in close cooperation with Project Manager Detlef Zinke and Chief Conservator Christoph Müller, had definite ideas on how to present the ancient sacred artefacts in the context of contemporary museum design. They wanted the new showcases to be almost invisible while still offering easy handling and flexible lighting options for changing exhibitions.
GLASBAU HAHN have built 5 free-standing cases with natural stone bases, and 4 wall cases with steel back panels inserted into the wall. One wall case 14 m long is the major highlight. Built without any walls inside, seven sliding door panels function with an opening mechanism only 60 mm high, allowing comfortable handling in spite of of a minimum of visible structure. Bevelled glass to glass edges close the door panels to the top panel, which supports the light system without an additional light box on top. The Architect and the Museum Management desired an integrated light system without any light box. HAHN provided a perfect LED solution with the power supply embedded in the glass top, with ball bearing LED heads fixed directly to the glass, and optional miniature lenses to flexibly adjust the distance to the light source.

The Prophet Mohamed's Holy Jacket is a 1400 year old sacred textile artefact preserved inside a HAHN display case with RK-2 climate control system
Hırka-i Şerif - The Mosque of the Holy Jacket, Istanbul
Turkey, 2010
The Prophet Mohamed's Holy Jacket is a 1400 year old sacred textile artefact preserved inside a HAHN display case with RK-2 climate control system
The Hırka - i Şerif Camii Mosque plays a significant role in the spiritual history of the City of Istanbul. Built in 1851 by Sultan Abdülmecid, this Mosque was built to be home of the famous Holy Jacket and to offer worshippers access to the sacred artefact. The Hırka - i Şerif was a present of the Prophet Mohammed to the Saint Üveys el Karani. After his decease, the Holy Jacket was inherited by his brother and the Üveys Family has maintained the artefact ever since.
In the early 17th century Şükrullah Üveys – the head of the family – took the Holy Jacket to Istanbul to display it in a small room offering public access. Only in 1852 the Hırka - i Şerif was mounted in its own space inside the Mosque built especially for this purpose. Investigations made in the course of the recent third restoration of the textile artefact determined its age to be 1400 years, created in a special rare weaving method. The family
and founders of a special foundation for the Hırka - i Şerif take care of its preservation for generations to come.
Today, the delicate textile is presented inside a display case designed by architect M.Hilmi Senalp in Istanbul and manufactured by GLASBAU HAHN in Frankfurt. Numerous visitors enjoy the presentation each year during the holy period of Ramadan.
