Embrace the curve: Achieve breathtaking designs with custom bent glass

GLAPE is your trusted partner, empowering architects and designers to bring their visions to life with comprehensive, sustainable custom glass solutions. We collaborate to shape the future of design and energy efficiency in your projects.

In architecture, especially in public buildings, glass plays a central role in the design of the outer facade, but also impact the energy balance of the same. Rooms flooded with light increase the well-being of the occupants. The dream of architects and designers is to continue the curved or abstract forms of their work over the large-area glass components.

The challenge? Translating those beautiful, curved, or abstract design elements into large-scale glass features. Traditional solutions often fall short, offering minimal bending achieved through segmentation into many smaller panes. This compromises not only aesthetics but also increases a building’s CO2 footprint due to the additional materials required.

Window surfaces contribute significantly to the energy balance both in the construction phase and during the use phase. The manufacture, transport, and installation of windows increase a building’s carbon footprint, as do heat losses through frames, joints, and transitions to masonry. Large-area, freely formable panes are given higher mechanical characteristic values through targeted shaping and are designed to be correspondingly thinner. All-glass corners designed as multiple insulating glazing improve the energy balance of such buildings during the utilization phase.

Precision glass bending: custom glass car roof

Custom glass car roofs and innovative interiors

Where aesthetics meets advanced engineering

GLAPE pushes the boundaries of automotive design with cutting-edge bent glass solutions. We create stunning custom glass car roofs and innovative interior elements, merging aesthetics with advanced engineering for an unparalleled driving experience. Imagine extending the sleek lines and folds of your car’s hood seamlessly over the roof. Our custom glass bending technology makes this a reality. Our engineered bent glass allows for a thinner, lighter roof without compromising strength. This translates to a more dynamic, aerodynamic car design.  In the interior, 3D shaped glass structures create a captivating visual experience and offer a smooth, responsive touch interface with superior hygienic properties.
