Mountmaking and installation
Hidden layer between the object and the visitor, mounts are an essential component of the museography. We constantly seek to improve our practice of mount making. The materials that we use are chosen for their aesthetic qualities and durability.
A comprehensive service
When designing and fabricating mounts we have strict standards:
• Use of materials compatible with preventive-conservation standards
• Durable and inert surface treatments
• Consideration for the ease of installation of objects on the mounts
Framing & Hanging
Our specialized workshop allows us to perform the most diverse mounting techniques, from mounting graphic material to framing and secured hanging. We collaborate with paper restorers to ensure the quality of our interventions.
From mounting to hanging
• A complete service from design to installation
• Expertise in all types of mounting systems and encapsulations
• Use of compatible and inert materials
• Favoring of reversible processes
Costumes mounting & mannequins
Our costumes mounts and mannequins are designed to fit a specific textile object (costumes, uniforms, kimonos...). We pay attention to all the materials we use so they are inert and stable. According to the scenography, we suggest different types of costume mounts and mannequins.
A custom offer
• Full mannequins and static busts
• Custom busts, fitted to the costume and completely invisible
• Specific mounts, created together with the museography
Preventive conservation is at the heart of our profession. Integrating restoration to our offer was only natural for us and in 2017, we developed a complete department with full time restorers. We have a solution for all your needs regarding restoration, preservation and collection survey.

Storage & Crating
In our work, we optimise the environmental conditions in which objects and collections are housed, by ensuring good handling, transportation and storage techniques. We offer a complete panel of services including transportation, crating and storing.
Storing your collection
Keeping your collections safe and secure is our priority. With 24-hour secure, continually monitored spaces, we can provide storage for single pieces, larger collections, and oversized artworks and artifacts.
Collection survey & Photography
Digitising artefacts is an essential component of collection care. This can take the form of creating a digital scan of documents, photos and books or photographing collection items. Digital images of collection items can be an integral part of cataloguing systems. It makes identification and sharing of information a lot easier.
A comprehensive service
Our photographer is specifically trained in the use of preventive conservation techniques. He will asses your needs and offer a comprehensive service from installing a photography workshop, handling artefacts, using professional and adapted material to sorting and editing contents.
