Facts & Figures
  • 21′ long SS box beam display case
  • 4 AESS structural table
  • First furniture scope for Feature Walters


Our Role

Feature Walters designed, fabricated and installed a display casework for the Museum of Modern Arts (MoMA)’s store, which included stainless steel tables and a 19′ stainless steel vitrine. The vitrine was finished off with lighting, and included a glass front, glass shelves, and sliding glass doors in the back.

Overcoming Challenges

During fabrication of the vitrine and the tables, challenges included welding and forming the multi-faceted, lower pan, back into shape to correct the distortion caused by the heat of the welding. Intricate filling in of all the pit and grinding marks on the entire cabinet was necessary to deliver an exceptional and attractive product, with no visible seams, fasteners or connections as per the design intent.
