Client: Carnegie Museum of Pittsburgh


Enhance a small retail space inside a museum that can be adapted for several locations, sizes, and rotating product mix.

Project Scope:

Small spaces call for smaller footprint displays that can showcase a rotating collection of exhibit themes. Displays needed to meet the following requirements:

  • A collection of modular displays that could easily adapt to several store layouts.
  • Easy integration and changeouts of branded signage and graphics.
  • Small footprint displays that pack a big punch in a small space.
  • Ability to accommodate various themed merchandise to coordinate with traveling exhibits that come through the museum.

  • With the use of multi-level displays, we helped enhance sightlines and give merchandising space for both small and large items.
  • The use of round displays helped to shape the aisles, while also providing flexibility to museum merchandisers to use an individual display in several configurations, separately or together.
  • SPC created interesting sightlines, directing traffic flow through the gift shop to create an exciting shopping environment that enticed customers to bring a piece of their experience home.
