The unit picture-passepartout-frame is of considerable importance so that a picture can unfold its full radiance. In addition to the selection of the passepartout-colour, the passepartout art and the cutting should be given the greatest attention.

Most teenagers like to decorate their youth room with posters to always have their interests in mind. Movie posters are just as popular as pictures of their favorite bands and famous actors or cool sayings. But as is often the case, tastes change quickly, which is why new motifs are always needed. Smart is who renounces thumbtacks or even nails - they leave over the years many unsightly holes in the plaster or in the wallpaper and of course in the poster

From the concept to the realization of an art exhibition, many aspects have to be considered. Realizing an exhibition is very time-consuming - at the beginning of every exhibition project is the detailed planning - topic, exhibition location, target group, timing, financing, etc.. No matter if it is about impressive photographs, fancy lithographs or extravagant paintings - every exhibition should ideally arouse curiosity and interest among art lovers.

Two becomes one: The optimal museum picture frame with distance. Beauty is fleeting - thousands of pictures and paintings prove the opposite. With the right framing and care they often outlast centuries. In recent years, the focus of museums and art collectors has shifted significantly towards the prevention of art objects. HALBE Framing has therefore further developed the Conservo magnetic frame proven in European museums. Under the motto "play it safe with a distance", the Conservo-Distance magnetic frame was developed, which combines the best of several frame variants. It offers optimal conservation conditions for flat works on paper that are particularly worthy of protection and slightly three-dimensional objects that are to be mounted plano or free-floating. Simple framing from the top and magnetic spacer bars, in addition to a well thought-out design, are the distinguishing features of the new CONSERVO-DISTANCE frame.

During a period of 8 years, the photographer Véronique Kolber travelled several times to the "States". This resulted in her AMERICAN DIORAMA , a very personal photo series inspired by Eggleston and Shore about her travels and everyday life in America.

Hanging pictures skilfully has presented many an art lover with great challenges. In addition to choosing the right picture frame and the right location, the type of mounting and suspension plays an important role in the presentation of photographs, graphics and other prints.

The processing of wooden strips is firmly anchored in the company history of HALBE frames. 25 years ago Heinrich HALBE succeeded in developing the first high-quality magnetic frame made of solid wood, which met the high quality requirements for protection and comfort. On the occasion of the wooden frame anniversary at HALBE the popular ash wood with its characterful grain was added to the portfolio as a filigree wooden frame in colours natural, white and black.
