Glaverbel wants to take four key elements - colour, light, substance and space - and harmonise them on its 300m² stand using a single material - glass - omnipresent in all its forms: transparent, translucent, coloured, patterned, varnished and coated.The stand will be dominated by the large Energy Lounge, built to celebrate Glaverbel's EnergyN glass.Launched a few months ago, neutral EnergyN glass combines enhanced insulating properties in winter with solar control in summer and guarantees optimal thermal comfort.By reducing consumption levels for heating and/or air-conditioning systems, EnergyN not only helps save a considerable amount of energy, but also cuts CO2 emissions. This glass is fully in keeping with the sustainable development approach adopted by Glaverbel, whose research is heavily focused on environmentally friendly products.
The Energy Lounge will also be a place to meet and talk to architects. Two cocktail evenings are planned. One, which will be attended by the renowned architect Odile Decq, will see the unveiling of an EVA Creation laminated glass, and the other, to be attended by François de Mazière, President of the French Institute of Architecture (IFA), will mark the forthcoming opening of the City of Architecture in Paris.
When it comes to decorative glasses, the star of the stand will be the new range of Lacobel varnished glasses. Designed in partnership with colour and trend experts (architects, colourists, designers), Lacobel comes in an extensive range of colours and can be used for a variety of applications, both for furniture (tables, cupboards) and wall cladding.
Glaverbel looks forward to seeing you in the Energy Lounge at Batimat for a preview of the latest in architectural and decorative innovations (Hall 3 - B38).
