Sphere Glass – A Playful Underwater Theme
HERMANN MEMORIAL HOSPITAL, HOUSTON, TX
A playful underwater theme is carried through the Pediatric Surgery waiting area of Hermann Memorial Hospital. Light hearted with bubbly fun, our glass spheres offer a cheery space for the young patients as they await their appointment. Sandblasting is gently gradated from below, offering some privacy via the partition wall without hindering light or diminishing space.
Handmade Glass Spheres with various shapes, are attached to clear or low iron panels of glass. The invisible attachment of each Sphere creates a gravity defying effect. Spheres are produced in various size diameters, shapes, and color tints. Choose from clear, low iron, blue, aqua blue, black or bronze tinted Spheres.
How does this product serve the healthcare design industry and respond to a specific need?
Within any newly constructed building, there will always be the essential, mandatory building products, such as glass walls and glass entry doors. In a Healthcare facility, these essential products can take on an added purpose. It is commonly known that color plays an important part in uplifting the human spirit, and that uplifting experiences contribute to improved health care. Can there be anything more important than lifting the human spirit of a person who is struggling physically?
The question above asks “How”. Our answer is in the visual proof of our most colorful Sphere Glass wall panels and entry door. The vivid and various color tints warm the spirit, and the delightfully interesting, 3-Dimensional Glass Spheres, create a playful visual effect, bringing smiles to those who have the opportunity to view.
A great feature of Sphere Glass: Sustainability.
Glass, comprised mainly from silica, is considered a never ending resource. Our flat glass panels contain up to 30% recycled cullet, and our Spheres can be produced with our Enviro95 recycled glass. This is a product which does not have to be replaced, whenever a building goes through its next renovation, so panels can be used repeatedly, for years to come.
