Tower 42 signage

Tower 42

Tower 42 is the City of London’s tallest building. When redesigning their signage Signbox chose Vitrics glass. Each plaque is different, and combines the logo and floor number engraved in 3 dimensions within the glass. The plaques measure 1000 x 450mm and are illuminated with special lit stainless steel spacers incorporating LED lighting which reflect off the internal engraving to great effect.

Engraved glass Arik Levy table

Arik Levy Table

The table was designed by Arik Levy and engraved by us, and measures 1300 x 500 x 19mm. The engraving inside is a series of beehive like structures engraved within the glass to a depth of 10mm. The surface of the glass remains untouched and perfectly smooth.

As you move around the table the design swirls and moves around as areas of the design close up and others open.

Engraved world map in glass

Vodafone Corporate HQ, UK

A specialist glass company who wanted to recreate a map of the world inside glass asked Sky Design to do the engraving. The final design comprised of 48 pieces of glass 1750 x 112 x 15mm. We engraved 5,000 spheres 13mm in diameter inside the various pieces of glass; every sphere having its precise position. We completed this project within 3 weeks.
The images below give an idea of the result and the finished screen is in the Visionarium Room at the Vodafone HQ in Newbury.
