Pacific Sotheby’s Willow Architectural Glass Partition
Willow Gemstone Decorative Glass is unique in that 95% of the glass surface is virtually texture less. Produced using exclusive technologies developed by Nathan Allan allows pattern to be formed in sweeping, curvaceous, clear shaped 3D grooves. A first of its kind in our industry provides designers with unique choices. Adding our Gemstone Blue color finish produced the seaside feeling that the designers wanted to create in this stunning wall of colorful textured glass.
Clear tempered safety glass, 3/8” (10mm) thick, with Willow kiln formed glass pattern, are used in this beautiful project. Each panel measured 5’0 x 5’0 (1500mm x 1500mm).
Working with Tamara Romeo of San Diego Office Design, our combined focus was to develop a watery blue decorative glass wall that reflected the seaside location of this prestigious office. The sweeping Willow texture is highlighted with our gorgeous Gemstone Blue color finish, which sparkles in the natural daytime light, and is accented at night time with enhanced interior lighting.
All panels are set on a strong, micro thin rail, to support the glass while staying invisible. Thin rails are also used at the top of each glass panel, to provide a secure installation.
The Willow Glass was the feature “wow” element of this project. Everyone that walks through the space can’t wait to touch it, and the reflection of the afternoon sun through the glass is absolutely breathtaking. Our partnership with Nathan Allan Glass Studios Inc made working with a international artist easy and seamless. they really know how to support creative designers and our sometimes hectic schedules and demanding requirements.- Tamara Romeo, San Diego Office Design
