Bendheim Houdini™ Glass

Houdini is a specialized Bendheim decorative glass simultaneously delivering the benefits of privacy and daylight. The low-iron glass lets in maximum light, while its fine, micro-ribbed surface reduces glare and effectively obscures the shapes and activities behind it. Laminated with a white interlayer to complement the contemporary palette of the room, Houdini Glass adds brilliance to the space. Its refined linear pattern emphasizes the project’s streamlined aesthetic.

Bendheim Decorative Glass

The bathroom’s shower enclosure was designed with Bendheim’s translucent teal colored safety tempered-and-laminated glass. The elegant color was selected from a variety of custom hues Bendheim developed specifically for the project.
