Mirage textured glass, part of Nathan Allan’s Classic Textures Directional Series, is a free flowing pattern with fluidly shaped lines of deep texture. Organic molds are produced with deep recesses to allow for the profound surface striations. Each mold is individually created to form a continuous pattern from panel to panel. With Nathan Allan’s mirage textured glass, surfaces are sealed, which creates an anti-microbial glass that is ideal for all Healthcare projects. It is important that the beauty of architectural glass remains for years to come.
Low iron tempered safety glass, 1/2″ (12mm) thick, with Mirage kiln formed glass, with horizontal pattern direction. Panel sizes vary up to 5’0 x 10’0 (1500mm x 3000mm). Flat and Bent tempered panels are used in abundance throughout these hospital projects.
In collaboration with HDR, Nathan Allan worked to create a safe space for patients of United Hospital Mother Baby. Our Mirage textured glass provides the comfort of privacy with distortion of light, and our unique bent glass serves as a solid sound barrier. The glass does not shut in patients, families or healthcare providers; instead, the light and colors that filter through the vibrant panels are effectively uplifting. With the everyday rhythms and routines of a hospital, it’s important to have a reminder of why it’s there: healing, recovery, and hope. By incorporating hope into our decorative glass design with light, movement and vibrancy, interior design can serve as a reminder of beauty and optimism.
All Mirage textured glass panels are installed using high end, commercial quality glass “shoes”. This heavy duty hardware creates a solid installation and keeps each decorative glass panel straight and level. Flat edge surfaces were created in the Mirage Glass to allow the glass to fit easily and tightly within the glass shoes. Incredible installation details performed by WL Hall Building Specialties of Hopkins MN.
