Crackle Glass Walls
Mauboussin Jewellery, New York
When French luxury jeweler Mauboussin approached Rockwell Group to design its new store, the prestigious design firm selected Nathan Allan Glass Studios Inc. to create a feature glass wall that would unify three floors of the store’s showcases. Working in conjunction with Rockwell’s designers, Nathan Allan developed a dazzling new product that calls to mind the chiseled surfaces of diamonds—Crackle Glass.
The 12’ x 30’ high decorative glass wall consists of glass in Fractured Forms of what resembles cracked ice that is melted onto a substrate panel. The panel is then laminated to a background mirror. Once completed, the mirror reflects intense light that passes through the wall, creating a sparkling effect that simulates the brilliance of diamonds.
