Reasons of a success
Seves glassblock's sucess is defined by one clear objective: to maximize the potential of glass blocks by transforming them from a marginal, traditional construction element into an artistic expression of light and space. From the start, Seves glassblock aimed to change traditional production rules and ideas regarding glass blocks, which were previously considered "poor" building materials used only in cases of lack of light. Seves introduced to the humble glass block highly advanced experience and technology thus enhancing its pureness, brilliance, transparency, and resistence, the single most beneficial components of the product. Then, it went one step further by adding an exclusive characteristic, once reserved only for the most sophisticated glasses: colour. An improved process of production rationalization modified and enlarged the entire product line with models and complementary modules to make customized solutions. Finally, the incorporation of new research and development activities made way for new wall installation methods, new special mortars for laying and finishing, and the progressive reduction of the "gap" between glass blocks to just 2 mm.
The glass block with a superior aesthetic profile
Thanks to the use of highly-selected raw materials, the introduction of cutting-edge machinery, ancient and experienced techniques of colouring, and the strict monitoring of systematic controls, Seves glassblock transformed the old "glass block" into a modern block of glass. Giving birth to a new and refined architectural furnishing element for interior and exterior ambients in the home or city, which can be "customized" by request according to any project design. Today, the glass block is considered a high-end product and an autonomous subject, rather than just providing a service, the glass block is capable of unique forms and aesthetic realizations that inspire creativity in all architects and interior designers.
