Echo Glass casts waves on the walls behind the panels, bringing the energy-replenishing presence of nature into the most sophisticated of modern or industrial spaces.
Nathan Allan’s Echo Glass panels illuminate one of the startling mysteries of physics – light’s dual nature as both particle and wave. Visible from all vantage points, Echo’s rippling undulations brilliantly capture, recast and reflect light. Just as sunlight moves through crystal-clear ocean or lake water, these stunning decorative panels create the impression of movement in stillness – and of stillness in movement.
Echo Glass is a collaboration with visionary designer Julie Babcock, of the award-winning Chipman Design Architecture, Des Plaines IL. For Sophie’s San Juan, Saks Fifth Avenue’s elegant restaurant in Puerto Rico, Julie wanted to create privacy and sound silos, while amplifying the abundant natural light during the day. The effect enhances the space’s romantic mood after sunset.
