The German Toy Museum was founded in 1901 and is located in Sonneberg, Thuringia. Sonneberg and the surrounding region present some of the main areas of toy manufacturing in Europe, and have developed mostly in the 18th and 19th centuries. In the beginning of the 20th century, Sonneberg wholesalers dominated the world trade and made Sonneberg the world’s toys city.
Archa inženiring realized the first bioclimatic display cases for the oldest German Toy Museum. Three big display cases, designed by Junk&Reich Architekten / Holzer Kobler Architekturen, are planned for renovation, expansion and redesign in the Germany Toy Museum for 2014. They are equipped with natural system of regulating microclimate conditions. With usage of non-burned clay bricks on back wall, the special microclimate and relative air humidity is regulated and achieved completely automatically and naturally. In addition, showcases are equipped with fibre optic lighting and monitor display. Hidden hinges by Archa inženiring and coloured glass enable the clean design and increase the quality of the display cases.
