ArtAncient's exhibition at Masterpiece London focused on the stories that ancient coins can tell. 25 coin boxes were placed in a long cabinet on a feature wall at the front of the stand. Each coin box was stepped out further than the last, resulting in an architectural, concertina effect.

The reverse of the feature wall was used as a design element to make the inside of the stand look and feel like the interior of a home. This was done by incorporating a low shelf and faux fireplace.

The coin cabinets could therefore not be accessed from behind the feature wall and had to be designed in such a way that, once unlocked, the board the coins were on could slide out from underneath the structure.
