Aïnu is a provider of museum services specialising in cultural heritage. Since 2002, it has brought its expertise to bear on the works and vision of curators, museum managers and designers throughout the world. With over 15 years’ experience in France and overseas, Aïnu is above all the product of a team whose talents are as unique as they are multiple.
The invisible link between object and visitor, mounting is a crucial element of museum displays. Each mount is designed and made to measure, to display the heritage collections of museums, art galleries or fine jewellers.

Mounts are made with careful attention to the object they will bear, its setting and the line taken by the exhibition. Each is unique, and at the design stage, the mount-makers assess the weight, centre of gravity and condition of the object, as well as the environmental conditions to which it will be exposed. They work in bronze and brass, which they fashion by hand, and also steel, stainless steel, gold and silver.

They are experts at fashioning the metal to fit the complex shape of the works. Over the years, Aïnu has worked with over 200 museums around the world, collaborating in particular on the opening of the Louvre Abu Dhabi, the Musée de l’Homme, in Paris, and the Musée des Confluences, in Lyon.
