Echo Glass is Nathan Allan Glass Studios’ newest creation of cast textured glass. The wavelike patterns of Echo are formed without texture, and bring a sense of calamity and peace to any environment. Unique to the Sophie’s project, the pattern flows from to panel to panel, a process extremely difficult to execute. Using proprietary Free Forming glass procedures, Echo Architectural Glass provides a wonderful visual appeal, while also creating a light distortion and shadowing effect. These features allow for plenty of light transmission without sacrificing privacy. Echo Glass will illuminate any space in reverberating fashion.
The Decorative glass panels used in this project are 2’6 wide x 6’0 high (762mm x 1829mm). The thickness of glass is 3/8” (10mm), and all panels are safety tempered. Edges of the Echo Architectural Glass are machine flat polished.
Working closely with Julie Babcock of Chipman Design, customized molds were developed to produce continuous, multi-use cast glass panels, where the shapely pattern flows seamlessly. This gracefully designed cast glass enhances Echo’s elegant reputation and curvaceous appeal.
The Echo cast glass panels for this project are recessed into the ledge and ceiling, using a standard glazing U-Channel. The recessed installation hides the Channel, creating an invisible detail. Panels are cushioned underneath with standard glazing cushions. Clear Silicone is added in light amounts, to remain invisible, and to prevent any vibration. The installation was performed by FE-RI Construction in Puerto Rico.
