The most important principle when designing an art storage facility is to preserve the irreplaceable art collection, whilst keeping every single piece accessible at all times. Constantly growing art collections in a world in which natural resources and space are scarce assets make it important to think about efficient use of every single m2 available. Did you know that you could reduce your storage space up to 75%? Less space used for art racks means more room for your collection, a decrease in costs per m2 and a substantial positive impact on your footprint.
Typically up to 90% of an art collection is stored in the depot. Smart space storage systems enable seamless integration of secure, sustainable art storage with increased visibility of artworks. A creative way to display art, enabling the public to also discover the hidden treasures of every collection.
Multiple collections from different museums or institutes stored in one central facility? A perfect way to share valuable? resources in collection management and to use space in the most efficient way. Our museum experts will be pleased to inspire you with projects implemented all over the world.

The rectangular art racks had to find a place within the spherical shape of the museum. Only with a sophisticated art storage system you can store 151,000 artifacts of all shapes and sizes in the available space. Bruynzeel has been entrusted with that.
