Sanaa comes in loose pieces. During transport, the glass panels are protected by unique aluminium frames. These frames are also used for positioning and securing during assembly. Sanaa can easily be put together by 2 people without special tools. The cabinet can be assembled and dismantled time and again using the patented connection system of spring clips, making it ideal for temporary exhibitions, compact storage areas and transport.

Some exhibits are extremely sensitive and can be serious damaged by high humidity levels. Sanaa uses the same principle of humidity control as is used for cabinets in the best museums: the air inside is sealed in and controlled by moisture absorption packs in the base. The base also contains a fan. The air is gently circulated within the cabinet through a subtle joint.

The door can be opened by opening the ‘hidden’ locks in the top and bottom corners. Lock and hinge are almost invisible thanks to the blocks glued onto the glass, but allow easy access to the exhibits.

Sanaa is a unique combination of function and beauty, a work of art in itself. In fact, sanaa is the Swahili word for work of art.
