This exhibition was born as a requirement of the Aga Khan Foundation, to show part of the collection of Islamic art of HH Aga Khan, in a journey that would begin in Parma and whose function was to promote the museum that would be done in Toronto. The system was designed in order for the showcases to be on an inclined plane, instead of being orthogonal, so that by the simple rest they would closed, after which they were assured. The projection of the glasses generated a tacit height that helped to generate a balance with the height of the space, without having to oversize the pieces. Inclined planes inside to the interior of the showcase were placed for the objects to be exposed. Within the modules, a lighting system made of fiber optics was integrated, which was revolutionary in that time.
