Your project is amazing and it transports me to a different world. I admire the shapes that you have used to create a unique and fluid form.
I realize that the main function of this project is a jewelry museum. In my perspective, I would suggest using some other finishes to complement the white parts that predominate in the space, but this is just my personal taste. And please be mindful of the structure, as it will be very hard to build and maintain.
I wish you good luck and I am excited to see more of your work.
