Shure is an American audio company that sets the worldwide industry standard for microphones and audio electronics. The Great Hall exhibition presents Shure's 90-year history and iconic product range at their headquarters outside of Chicago, Illinois. The casework is integrated into a common thoroughfare in the building, originally designed by Helmut Jahn.

Four "icon cases" celebrate Shure's iconic products, while a floor-to-ceiling glass case running the length of the exhibition tells a thematic narrative of Shure's history.

Elements of transparency are echoed throughout, offering vantage points for sections of the exhibit to layer over one another as visitors explore the space.
