Natural History Museum
When London’s Natural History Museum had the opportunity
to display the world’s most complete Stegosaurus skeleton,
no risks were taken. A design solution was therefore
required that would raise the installation above ground
level to prevent accidental collisions, while also hide the
supportive steel frame from view.
An outer plinth constructed from Staron® was created
that beautifully complemented, and cleverly disguised, the
complex steel frame. As the inner frame sat on bespoke
shock-absorbent feet, it was also essential that the outer
plinth have no contact with it at any point.
