Concept was to design a display wall that would be easy to reconfigure and handle samples for client. The steel grid works with industrial building feel and was hvlp sprayed with acrylic enamel to accent wall and recede. Display items hand on a gator clip and hook system.
Drawing for wire hang to footer to utilize a hanging grid and enable hanging option in open spaces. This design could allow for back to back hangs for viewing from both sides. See next image to see how this design was exectuted.
Here you can see the concept executed for the Eyes on the Arctic exhibition in Ottawa. The captions were velcro'd to the back of the prints. A great design for spaces with hanging option but limited wall space. love the floating affect!. Email me with any questions.
Drawing for large easel that can be used as a display or partition wall. This design works on a cleat system that works single sided or back to back. The top metal frame separates and slides into the metal square stock attached to the underside of the wood footer with low profile castors. I used .5" ultra light mdf for the Eyes on the Arctic exhibit title but a variety of substrate could be used. The metal portion was fabricated by Tim Beachly.
This drawing shows how the easel can be formatted as a large signage easel or partition wall. I faded the wall cladding so you can see the steel structure beneath. Im sure the creatively inclined could format in other ways.
Here you can see the concept executed for the Eyes on the Arctic exhibition in Ottawa. We used primed and painted .5" lightweight mdf as the base to apply vinyl graphics and custom painted hdu dimensional letters. The back was used to hang additional exhibit materials.
These images show the concept sketch for lightweight standing easels and some production shots. We produced 6 total easels for the exhibitions in Ottawa. Open and angled bridle joints instead of hardware. They have a 10° lean and fixed widths to accommodate exhibition panels applied with velcro.
Completed easels being staged at the International Pavilion in Ottawa. lots of benefits to this design for multiple use spaces that need flexibility. Email me if you are interested in ordering these for your venue.
