Modernfold has always been in the forefront of offering the latest aesthetic options to the architectural community
Greenfield, IN (Vocus) April 23, 2010
Modernfold ( http://www.modernfold.com ), the market leader in innovative operable partitions, has begun collaborating with Joel Berman Glass Studios ( http://www.jbermanglass.com ) to bring designer glass options to Modernfold space division products.
The use of glass in operable partitions is an accelerating trend that will likely continue given modern demands for daylighting and increased interior openness. The new collaboration will enable architects and designers to integrate a wide array of custom textures, colors and resins into Modernfold partitions for a customized, contemporary finish.
Modernfold systems suitable for the distinctive glass products include the full-glass partition MOVEO® line of partitions and window cut-outs on the Acousti-Seal® line.
“Modernfold has always been in the forefront of offering the latest aesthetic options to the architectural community,” said Dan Popplewell, director of sales at Modernfold. “With the availability of remarkable products from Joel Berman Glass Studios, we again demonstrate that space division can be beautiful and functional at the same time.”
Joel Berman Glass Studios glass will be available directly from Modernfold representatives, who will interface directly with the glass producer to accommodate nearly any standard or custom need.
