Bendheim’s Platinum Elements™ collection comprises never-before-seen glass designs for inspired contemporary interiors. The collection pushes the aesthetic boundaries of decorative glass through both its innovative manufacturing method and its art.
The collection’s eight original patterns are produced through a proprietary “chrome” imaging process. They are inspired by everyday objects and natural motifs that have been sensitively abstracted to create chic, timeless designs. The patterns are applied to low-iron, ultra-clear glass, and are highly customizable, fully scalable and reversible. The Platinum Elements generate intriguing movement as light reflects from their sparkling surfaces – perfect for trendsetting hospitality, retail, and corporate interiors.
The Platinum Elements collection features a combination of translucent and opaque glass varieties to address various design needs. The translucent glass designs combine elements of transparency and reflectivity for a complex, multidimensional appearance. They are well suited for interior walls and partitions, doors, stair railings, balustrades, and ceilings. The patterns are laminated between two glass lites, permanently protected from scratches and abrasions. Laminated Platinum Elements are safety building products compliant with ANSI Z97.1 and CPSC 16 CFR 1201, and provide enhanced sound control.
The opaque designs employ the contrast between the reflective and colored (back-painted) elements of the patterns to create vibrant wall surfaces. The color coatings protect the “chrome” designs, and are available in a virtually unlimited palette. Back-painted Platinum Elements are typically supplied in a non-safety, annealed form. For safety wall cladding applications, such as elevator interiors, a laminated back-painted version is also available.
