Esthetic Accents Breaks New Ground: Architectural Stained Glass for a Flat World

As Thomas Friedman tells us in his new book, The World Is Flat: A Brief History of the Twenty-first Century, the world isn't going to be flat, it is flat.

By "flat" he means "connected" in ways no would could have imagined a few scant years ago. The world of architecture and design, especially in relation to architectural glass is flattening too--and Esthetic Accents is leading the way.

A model example of this sort of “flattening” is the collaboration between Esthetic Accents and its Chinese manufacturing associates. With the lower costs and greater efficiencies made possible by this sort of international cooperation, early stage companies like EA can quickly ramp up to compete--and win--not just for low-cost manufacturing and information labor but, increasingly, for high-end research and design work as well.

Leveraging new opportunities for doing business abroad to serve both domestic and international markets, EA has already become the leader in manufacturing and supplying mass-customized architectural stained glass worldwide.

Using state-of-the-art techniques for fabricating mass customized, highly durable stained glass products, EA has partnered with manufacturing facilities in China to introduce to a growing market mass produced glass that has the look and variety of glass previously only available from artisans in quantities an artisan could never match.

Despite the large quantities needed to serve the needs of a burgeoning market, Esthetic Accents stained glass is custom designed for each customer, whether an individual homeowner or a large corporation.
