A Glass Collection Unlike Any Other…
Bendheim has collaborated with a leading architectural firm and an excellent Italian etched glass manufacturer to create four etched pattern glasses that draw their inspiration from the visual arts and architectural design. All are produced on ultra-clear low-iron float glass, utilizing technologically advanced methods with particular attention to the strictest environmental protection standards.
Etched on both sides of the glass, the designs lend a strong sense of dimensionality and movement, allowing them to dynamically interact with light and surrounding design elements. The permanent non-coated surface is naturally resistant to fingerprints and staining over the lifetime of the product.
It is a superior glass for demanding applications such as shower enclosures and building exteriors and is ideal for partition walls, doors, and decorative feature elements in hotels, healthcare facilities, restaurants and residences.
The Architect Series I collection is available in three standard thicknesses: 1/4” (6 mm), 3/8” (10 mm), and 1/2” (12 mm), in sheets up to 88.5 by 126 inches (225 cm x 320 cm). Additional thicknesses and colors, including bronze, amber, blue and green, are available by special order. Note: Aria is available in 3/8” (10 mm) and 1/2” (12 mm) only.
presents a skillfully-designed modern solution to privacy challenges in open, day-lit interiors. It is a graded glass that elegantly provides a high degree of opacity from the floor to a height of approximately 30 inches (76cm), rises to a more translucent range, and culminates in near-transparency.
Inspired by the minimalist art of the 1960s, Trattini’s
stylish, syncopated grid of vertical lines of varying widths is punctuated by subtle horizontal bands. Its understated elegance makes it a superb choice for corporate offices, public and healthcare facilities.
builds upon the structure of Trattini
. An asymmetrical composition of circles and ellipses suspended atop a structured linear pattern creates the vibrancy in Staccato’s
“beaded” surface. Walking past the glass creates an illusion of circles spinning around invisible axes, making Staccato
an exciting choice for hospitality and residential applications.
Merletto draws inspiration from some of nature’s most dramatic forms – electrical pulses and biomorphic forms – as well as the modern visual arts. Its distinctive, fine linear design gracefully adds sparkle and punch to interior spaces.
