Bowed and thermally "bent" insulating glass in Düsseldorf's Kö-Bogen

Gently curved landmark at the end of the glamorous boulevard Düsseldorf's Königsallee is not only famous for the luxury offers of its urban boulevard - it is, when viewed from the South, also the proverbial precursor to the Kö-Bogen which has been created at the Northern end of the boulevard: a building complex designed by Daniel Libeskind, whose facade of natural stone and curved full-glass elements lends new impetus to the urban flair around Jan Wellem-Platz.  The result is the Kö-Bogen, designed by the New York star architect Daniel Libeskind, two separate buildings which, with a height of 26 metres and a circumference of over 500 metres, represent an imposing building complex and a real eye-catcher on the Düsseldorf skyline.Unique in Europe is the use on this scale of curved and thermally "bent" dual insulated glass as an element of the facade design.

For Glasbiegerei Doering from Berlin, a member of the GLASSOLUTIONS Group, the challenge consisted of successfully satisfying the architectural requirements of 2,200 m² of facade glass panes in varying radii and with panel widths of 2.70 metres and heights of up to 5.60 metres.
