Selected from a field of the most prestigious art glass producers world-wide, GlasPro has been awarded the 2012 World of Color Award, Interior Division at the Eastman World of Color Awards in Dusseldorf, Germany. Recognized for “innovative use of color in the built environment” GlasPro earned the honor for the “Harmonic Convergence” installation at Miami International Airport.
Sunlight, sound, and color unite spectacularly in this multifaceted mural which has also been selected Most Innovative Decorative Glass Project, Commercial Exterior by Glass Magazine. “Harmonic Convergence” provides a unique “immersive color experience” for travelers. Sunlight streams through a wall of laminated glass panels encompassing the entire color spectrum.
The 72 foot window wall at the heart of this project was designed by Christopher Janney and fabricated by GlasPro Inc. of Santa Fe Springs, CA. The installation is composed of 72” x 72” triple-laminated panels, each meticulously hand-spliced with nine unique colors. This high level of craftsmanship allowed the artist to create a spectrum that gradually changes from deep reds to bright violets, evoking the sensation of a rainbow arching over the Everglades after a mid-summer thunderstorm. The warm sub-tropical sun casts this pallet of colors upon the X-bracing of white structural steel and white interior of the space to envelop all who pass in an “abstraction of South Florida in color and sound.”
It is this fusion of creativity and technology envisioned by artisans like Christopher Janney and fueled by craftsmen like GlasPro Inc. that is transforming the human experience, elevating the every-day from mundane to miraculous.
