Examples of applications where Glassfer technology has been used.
One of the most characterizing and historically important projects in which Glassfer technologies have been used to achieve a result with perfect geometries. In particular, the project was aimed at the construction of the underground pyramid, from a technical point of view much more complex than the upper one due to the lack of structural profiles. A result that has allowed Glassfer to build an international reputation.
Realization of reflective glass that covers the entire structure with an "arrugado" effect, an effect that recalls the Antoni Gaudí style, whose architecture characterizes the skyline of the city, returning a distorted image of the buildings that are reflected on the windows.
Realization of internal partitions and external facade for London-Heathrow Airport, the busiest airport in Europe and the seventh in the world for transit passengers. The technology designed uses Glassfer Security crystals with anti-deflagration performance and Glassfer Serigraph white lacquering.
Creation of anti-slip and fall-prevention steps, using Glassfer Security technology, for "Il ponte della Costituzione" in Venice. The bridge, designed by the Spanish architect Santiago Calatrava, is the fourth pedestrian bridge over the Grand Canal and connects the historic center to the railway station area, one of the busiest areas of the city.
Example of realization with digital printing technique. Rockheim, the Norwegian national museum of rock and pop music, stands on an old renovated factory with a huge roof made up of hundreds of glass plates digitally printed with Norwegian music album covers.
The Saint-Georges Center, which is located near the center of Geneva, is a recently renovated historic building from the early 1960s. The façade, created with Glassfer Serigraph, shows a range of reddish tones that flow into grays that integrate perfectly with the color found in the immediate city context.
San Paolo, 2013
The Corinthians Stadium was built in Sao Paulo on the occasion of the Brazil 2014 FIFA World Cup. In this project Glassfer has supplied more than 5000 square meters of Glassfer Security crystal embellished with the Glassfer Serigraph technique, able to create a continuous and homogeneous nuance from the center of the building up to the outer sides.
Interior and Contract
In collaboration with the Citterio & Viel architecture firm of Milan, we created all the Vip Lounges of the Doha airport in Qatar: crystals ranging from partitions made with Glassfer Security to real works of art finished by hand or with more advanced techniques such as Glassfer Draw and Serigraph.
The Carba Center is an urban development area in the town of Liebefeld in Switzerland conceived as a mixed architecture intended for work, services and housing. The façade, made with 8 mm single-color Glassfer Serigraph, is characterized by an essential style with few elements well harmonized with each other and has been designed to produce an effect of slight movement in the observer.
This product is the perfect combination of resistance and aesthetics, obtained through the use of the Glassfer Mesh technique with metal insert (Mesh Iron). A 1.1 mm perforated steel sheet interposed between two 10 mm tempered glass sheets with HST treatment, all laminated with the Sentryglas anti-hurricane film.
San Francisco, 2015/2016
Realization of reflective glasses worked with Glassfer Serigraph that cover the entire architectural structure. The skyscraper, with an overall height of 326 meters, is the tallest skyscraper in the San Francisco city and the second in California.
Thanks to Glassfer Security, at the 2017 Venice Biennale, the artist Anne Imhof was able to create this incredible installation. The Glassfer Security Anti-shattering product combines the transparency of the crystal and its great resistance: through the use of triple glazing with different heat treatments and Sentryglas rigid film, a resistant but at the same time invisible flooring has been obtained.
