Renaissance Tower Lobby Window

A symphony of marbles, acrylic grid punched copper, etched glass, patterned glass, dichroic glass, mouth-blown glass, and plate glass, Ed Carpenter’s "Renaissance Tower Lobby Window" consists of 20 panels, each approximately 43" x 25". Shades of bright blue, yellow, and orange energize the cheerful geometric patterns reminiscent of intricate textile patterns. The thick colors of the glass dramatically dim the natural lighting, creating a hushed space in the lobby of this apartment building. The "Renaissance Tower Lobby Window" hovers over the apartment mailboxes, giving an appropriate amount of subdued natural lighting and privacy.
