Tomorrow’s world will be a world of active glazing where the optical, thermal and other physical properties of glass can be controlled actively.

QUANTUM GLASS™ offers state-of-the-art solutions for contemporary lifestyles, sustainable and eco-friendly materials that embody new architectural codes and optimize energy consumption, and project support that only a dedicated network of professionals can provide.
 
With the first six technologies from QUANTUM GLASS, the new brand from Saint-Gobain Glass Solutions, tomorrow's world becomes a reality. At last it is possible to imagine shapes and volumes whatever the constraints imposed by geographical location, sun exposure and the immediate living environment.
 
On 5 November 2009, during the BATIMAT trade fair, QUANTUM GLASS will open the doors to its new interactive studio: A Glass House. A true temple dedicated to smart and energy-saving glass solutions, this exceptional showcase will be open to both industry professionals and the general public.
 
Supported by Saint-Gobain and benefiting from its 350 years of expertise and experience, QUANTUM GLASS aims to achieve one purpose: arouse emotion and push back the boundaries of modern living, facilitating architectural projects and state-of-the-art products with energy-intelligent glass technologies.
 
 
Contemporary architects, designers and end-users need to be able to satisfy general public expectations by designing harmonious, intelligent and energy-saving buildings while making life more comfortable. Thanks to its initial range of six visionary and eco-efficient technologies, to be used either individually or combined, QUANTUM GLASS makes this possible.
 
For made-to-measure service, a helpful and pro-active network of certified professionals will assist clients from project design to completion and acceptance. Because sophisticated technology should not mean complexity, QUANTUM GLASS offers turnkey packages for "plug & play" delivery and installation.
 
The impressive history of Saint-Gobain began in 1665, when Louis XIV's Finance Minister Colbert founded the Manufacture Royale des Glaces de Miroirs... 2009 will be the year of the opening of A Glass House in Paris! The brand will open its interactive Parisian studio on 5 November 2009, during the BATIMAT trade fair. "A Glass House" is located in the former Espace Claude Berri (renovated by Jean Nouvel): 4, passage Saint Avoye - (entrance 8 rue Rambuteau) - 75003, Paris. Here, architects, designers as well as the general public can discover the multiple possibilities offered by the QUANTUM GLASS technologies. Last but not least, "A Glass House" will also be a studio for the training of future certified QUANTUM GLASS installers.
