Historically, exhibitors had to choose between highly functional – yet often forgettable – system architecture, and aesthetically superior but logistically complex custom builds. But modular exhibit systems have evolved to the point where form now meets function by way of highly customizable and aesthetically pleasing structures that pack tightly, ship efficiently, and install with the ease of an erector set. To prove that point, here are six user-friendly system exhibits that function like well-oiled machines without sacrificing style in the process. By Linda Armstrong
