Museum of Islamic Art in Doha, Qatar, with SCHOTT AMIRAN® for showcases

Project

Setting the stage artistically

There could hardly be a more suitable place for the art treasures of the Islamic world than this unusual museum building planned by I.M. Pei and enhanced by the well-balanced interior rooms of Jean-Michel Wilmotte.

The exhibit rooms of the Museum of Islamic Art in Doha, Qatar, located on five floors that surround the atrium were designed by the French interior designer Jean-Michel Wilmotte: Exotic Brazilian wood, dark gray porphyry and metallic fabric create a contrast with the light brickwork. 410 simple, partially room-high display cases made of anti-reflective SCHOTT AMIRAN® glass create a suitable environment for the oriental exhibits.

Material

SCHOTT AMIRAN® for showcases creates a suitable environment for the oriental exhibits. Fiber optic lighting from SCHOTT set the stage for each one of the artworks inside the 300 display cases designed by Click Netherfield.

AMIRAN® for showcases:
  • Anti-reflective glass for the display cases.
  • High-precision edge processing of the glass.
  • Flexibly designed glass fibers for ceiling and display case lighting. Fiber optic components in lengths of between 1.5 and 20 m / 5 and 65 feet.
