KBIS Preview - Glass Countertops from ThinkGlass

I first saw ThinkGlass at KBIS in 2007 and am really looking forward to how they've changed in four years. Their product is stunning, becoming the centre of attention in any space they're used.  Don't believe me?  Have a look at the famous chocolate fountain in front of Jean-Philippe Patisserie in the Belagio Hotel in Las Vegas.  The beautiful glass work comes from ThinkGlass!  Even the Olympic Cauldron for the 2010 Winter Olympic Games in Vancouver, BC was adorned in glass from Think Glass.

The countertops produced by ThinkGlass may not be as over-the-top impressive as the fountain, but they are show stoppers to be sure.  The diversity of the material allows ThinkGlass to modify the colour, texture, profile and shape of the countertop.  LED lights are often installed along the edge of the countertops creating a glowing effect that's both beautiful as useful.

But ThinkGlass is also quick to point out that glass is a very practical countertop material. Because the countertops are cast as a single piece, there are no cracks or weak points.  It's also non-porous and requires no annual sealants making it the perfect surface for residential and commercial applications alike.

You can see ThinkGlass at KBIS Booth C6882

Thanks for the heads up. How do you find it to fabricate? said...

They send them to us fabricated and we just install them.

Sorry, I should have worded that differently. Is ThinkGlass difficult to work with or does it fabricate easily?

It's quite pricey and not for the average taste. Besides that they are great.
