Nothing less than the perfect symbiosis of glass and wood – that is what the architects of Skidmore, Owings & Merrill LLP (SOM) wanted for a the 24-level office building “111 South Main” in Salt Lake City, USA. The wood installed in the façade of the lobby “grows into” the seven meters high glass elements. sedak developed a lami-nation technique that allows the German glass manufacturer to laminate real wood veneers in between the glass layers. Hence, the visual appearance is original and the wood permanently protected by the glass.

The architect’s design demanded an individual print of white lines that filter the view and frame the interior activ-ities during the day. Thanks to the ceramic-ink digital printing, the lines could be applied to the 53 double lami-nates with an exceptionally high precision.
For a design as transparent as possible, also the supporting construction is out of glass. Therefore, the up to 13.8m long glass fins were installed both vertically and horizontally. To realize the 90-degree construction, sedak fabricated individual, shifted 4-layer and 6-layer laminates that interlock.
