Having the best connections was always a recipe for success
Although seele’s wealth of engineering knowledge is also applied to its structural glass designs, it is almost impossible to detect with the naked eye. Minimalist metal fittings are either laminated between the individual glass plies or fixed in resin-grouted holes. The fittings join glass stair treads to glass stair strings or the glass outer envelope to the glass fins of a façade. Tailor-made fittings in stainless steel or titanium accommodate tolerances and transfer loads into the glass exactly as planned. They join panes along vertical joints to continuous glass fins, which, like glass beams as well, function as load-bearing members.
