Founded in 1952, Goppion is the recognized world leader in the manufacture of museum exhibition systems. As a workshop of ideas integrating the engineering of preservation and the art of exhibition display, Goppion creates high-performance showcases that combine advanced functionality and aesthetics. Such icons of cultural heritage as the Mona Lisa, the Venus de Milo, Vitruvian Man, and the Gates of Paradise, are currently protected by Goppion systems.
At Goppion, solutions are developed in the Laboratorio Museotecnico, where engineering, applied research, prototype testing and the use of advanced materials and techniques merge with the northern Italian artisanal tradition of exceptional craftsmanship. Goppion’s reputation is thus built on its record of engineering and manufacturing exceptionally complex, bespoke display cases that are aesthetically and structurally integrated within their architectural setting.
This foundation in innovation provides a competitive advantage over those companies that rely solely on standardized operations and production to manufacture cases that cannot be easily adapted to the diverse cultural contexts and collections of individual museums and their exhibition needs.
Incorporating the accumulated knowledge gained through its partnerships with prominent architects, designers and world-renowned cultural institutions,
Goppion has created “System Q.” Developed for museum directors, conservators and designers, it is a system of easily customizable technical solutions, comprising over thirty case types that utilize Goppion’s most advanced technical components to address our clients’ requirements for maximum visibility, structural integrity, operational functionality, appropriate lighting, environmental and climate controls, and security.
Available in a wide range of sizes, finishes with additional options, resulting in more than 150,000 variations, “System Q” cases can be easily integrated within traditional and contemporary architectural environments. “System Q” provides art, history and science museum professionals with an ideal tool for creating elegant, cost-effective exhibition designs utilizing Goppion’s state-of-the-art display technology.
