Continuing to push the boundaries of kiln cast glass design, Joel Berman Glass Studios introduces Stilla, a three-dimensional, textured glass pattern. This effervescent and active texture is a scaled down companion to Ellisse, and expands the pallet of related textures in different scales available to designers and architects.
Functionality: StillaÕs accentuated three dimensional pattern is ideal for active hospitality environments including hotel lobbies, restaurants and retail spaces to enhance and visually accent an area. Suitable for a wide range of interior and exterior applications, such as partition walls and reception feature walls, Stilla offers a dynamically inspiring and visually bold three dimensional expression in glass
Flexibility: Available in panels of glass up to 54Ó wide x 108Ó high and in any color on the pantone scale, Stilla can be custom design into virtually any interior and exterior applications. Each panel can be scaled to suit interior and exterior needs. This texture can also be tempered, shaped and drilled.
Durability: Glass is a permanent material, impervious to sun and rain; resistant to scratching, scuffing, and staining due to everyday use. Architectural glass has a longer life cycle than traditional materials including wood, fabric, gypsum board and other materials. Stilla can also be tempered for safety.
Aesthetics: Textured cast glass is translucent; it obscures objects while permitting the transmission of light. In this manner, textured glass is an excellent material for applications requiring privacy. With BermanÕs new effervescent and active texture, the beauty and translucency of textured glass is combined in one panel featuring clarity, transparency and privacy.
Innovation: Representing a departure from conventional glass casting techniques, Stilla is cast using different materials and tactics that permit the glass to be formed and shaped while maintaining transparency.
Sustainability: Stilla can be made of 100% salvaged glass recovered from construction project; over-ordering often occurs to account for breakage during installation. Stilla can help your project earn LEED points.
