We are proud to say that we participated in the birth of the most important museum in the world dedicated to wine culture, and even more so as it was built in our land, La Rioja, by the Vivanco family.
The technical carpentry for the Dinastía Vivanco Museum of the Culture of Wine was large and spectacular. The Museum was opened in 2004 but the project took several years as they built the various rooms and furnished them. They most varied pieces of furniture were built and installed, including acoustic panels, sound-absorbent wood inner linings, technical doors, phenolic lockers and acoustic ceilings. This involved all the divisions of Spigogroup. The project was carried out by the architect Jesús Marino Pascual and the decorator Jesus Lozano.
These were some of the most important actions in the different rooms, all of which were made to measure for the project:
Acoustic conditioning of the museum audiovisual room by covering floors, ceilings and walls forming three overlapping Spigotec type wood boxes made of acoustic panels of sound-absorbent wood finished in balsamic walnut, ash and alder. See Photo 1
Special doors for the room and central benches made from obeche. See Photo 2
The furniture is solid oak by Carpintería Paco, our technical carpentry division: counters, display cases, wine racks, glass cabinets, central furniture or islands and wood walls with curved shelving. See Photo 1 – See Photo 2 – See Photo 3 – See Photo 4 – See Photo 5 – See Photo 6
