Bendheim has partnered with Bart Halpern to introduce a new exclusive collection of decorative architectural glass to the interior design market. The collection transforms Bart Halpern’s renowned Glitterati™ textiles into safety building glass, addressing the need for shimmering luxury materials that subtly dramatize interior spaces.
The Bendheim Hospitality Collection by Bart Halpern is a versatile and effective design material. Subtle at a distance, the combination of natural colors and metallic hues is dazzling and bold up-close. The collection features five Glitterati textile colors – champagne, gold, copper, silver, and black – laminated in Bendheim low-iron glass. Additional Glitterati options are available on request.
The collection’s contemporary yet classic aesthetic, enhanced by its warm metallic glow, is an elegant option for a variety of décors and applications. Installed in partitions, doors and windows, stair railings, balustrades, and ceilings, the metallic threads shimmer in the changing light, providing differing levels of privacy and daylight. Laminated to mirror or back-painted, the collection is transformed into distinctive, elegant wall cladding for feature walls, lobbies, and elevator interiors.
This exclusive collection continues the Bendheim tradition of partnering with design industry leaders, including Robert A.M. Stern Architects, eh Oui Metals of France, and KOVA Textiles. These collaborations have helped Bendheim build an expansive catalog of modern classic glass designs with understated elegance and timeless appeal.
“The new Bendheim glass collection by Bart Halpern creates dynamic visual effects, presenting different aesthetics at varying distances and angles,” said Steven Jayson, Vice President of Bendheim. “While the collection’s soothing tones and refined quality can complement most décors, the unexpected dazzle adds an intriguing element that truly catches the eye.”
The Bendheim Hospitality Collection by Bart Halpern is ideally suited for luxury hospitality, retail, corporate, and residential interiors, as well as select healthcare applications. The glass can be supplied fully fabricated to specification in sizes up to 60 by 120 inches and approximate thicknesses ranging 5/16 inch to ¾ inch. Greater sizes are available on special order.
