Glaspro, Inc., the US West Coast“s predominant designer and manufacturer of custom-design architectural glass, was recently selected to manufacture over 50, eight-foot tall, bent, laminated glass panels for interior columns at the Pacific Design Center in West Hollywood, California, US. As part of the Pacific Design Center“s major renovation project, Glaspro is creating bent laminated glass panels to be wrapped around the interior columns of the Design Center“s Blue Building and Green Building. The retrofitted columns feature custom-design 70 x 96-in, luminescent panels designed in a circle shape concealing a light source to provide ambient and low-level lighting. The glowing columns will be topped with capitals of acoustical material banded in steel, adding much-needed sound absorption. Los Angeles-based Columbia Fabricating is designing the framework and channels to support the custom-design glass panels. The latter is also responsible for the construction of the retrofitted columns and the installation of the glass panels. Glaspro was founded as a regional manufacturer of bent glass for residential and commercial applications. The company has grown to become the West Coast“s most predominant architectural glass manufacturer with a wide selection of products to meet the needs and exceed expectations of its customers worldwide. Glaspro is a recognized leader in glass laminating, bending, insulating, colourizing, tempering, and fritting. The company has completed projects for notable clients such as Guggenheim Las Vegas, Nordstrom, San Francisco Moscone Center, San Francisco International Airport, Pixar Studios, Getty Trust, Western Digital, First Interstate Tower Honolulu, Disneyland, Cheesecake Factory, Beverly Hilton, and EDS Corporate Headquarters.
