What is THEORiA?

Home > What is THEORiA?

A simple design helps the exhibits inside, the focus of the exhibition, naturally stand out.
Advanced technologies combine to enable a quantum leap in ease of use and reliability.

These museum display cases are so unobtrusive as to be virtually invisible, so museum visitors can completely immerse themselves in the exhibits. THEORiA is the latest line of museum display cases. A simple stage of glass and lighting, it effectively eliminates distracting elements that can interfere with the appreciation of exhibits. Yet despite its streamlined appearance, THEORiA incorporates many innovative mechanisms, to ensure that delicate exhibits are handled carefully and displayed safely. The flow of operation is smooth, and safety measures are provided to anticipate every situation. This is the ultimate form in quality and functionality.

Display : Design and exhibiting performance

How can design and lighting play a role in showing an artifact or work of art as it is, so the viewer can appreciate its power and beauty without any distractions? At Kokuyo, we spent years perfecting the design and performance of our display cases, pursuing our mission of displaying exhibits as simply and directly as possible. THEORiA is the result of that quest for perfection.

Protection : Safekeeping of exhibits

One of the basic functions of a display case is protecting precious cultural heirlooms from humidity, temperature fluctuations, UV light, hazardous substances and other dangers. Display cases must also provide sufficient seismic isolation and other earthquake-resistant features. THEORiA combines the best of Kokuyo technologies developed over many years of painstaking research for storing and protecting precious exhibits.

Use : Handling characteristics

Museum display cases must be faultlessly easy to handle. From electromotive wall display cases that open fully using a remote control, to free-standing cases featuring a non-directional glass lifting system, Kokuyo's unique THEORiA cases have raised the standard in display case operability.
