Project: York Glaziers Trust - Bedern Workshop (York Minster)
This is the workshop area designed so the public can go ‘behind the scenes’ to watch the work of York Glaziers’ Trust conservators.
We were asked to design this system so the lighting unit had a number of extra support frames that all fitted the same lighting unit. So at regular periods they can change the glass on display without disturbing the integrity of the piece being handled. It is also possible to display unrestored glass in this way without risking the glass.
This view is with the light off – not a very inviting object.
With the lights on everything comes alive.
Protective toughened glass is fitted to this display system to protect the panel.
It also protects the public from injury should somebody stumble into it.
