The NSG Group's Optiwhite, extra-clear glass, has been adopted for Apple’s new headquarters in California.

The 2.8 million square foot headquarters are to be completed by the end of 2016.  Dubbed “The Spaceship” because of its 360-degree curved glass fronted walls and central courtyard and it will house 13,000 staff and contain a 1,000-seat auditorium, a gym and 300,000 square feet of “research” space.Optiwhite has been adopted for its façade and canopies.Together with Sedak, an esteemed glass processor, we have begun the development of this very special Optiwhite from 2010 for the project, creating special colors and extra-large size up to a length of approximately 15 meters.Optiwhite is a low iron extra-clear float glass.It is practically colorless and has no green tint inherent to regular float glass.

Its neutral color provides a borderless feeling between the inside and outside of a building.

In addition to the California headquarters, Optiwhite has been used for Apple stores in different parts of the world, including the ones in New York, Tokyo and Istanbul.
