The world’s largest glass block at 42,8×42,8 cm, Ginza is inspired by Gin, the Japanese word for silver. The intrinsic brilliance of the Ginza block is due to its light-reflecting, metallized lateral profiles.
Form and function combine in this 30×30 cm block with slightly inclined, parallel faces: an incline of 5° for a thickness of 5cm on one end, and 10 cm on the opposite end.
Inspired by the ancient Greek columns of the same name and designed by Rafael Moneo to seamlessly integrate the library at the University of Deusto (Spain) with the existing environment.
This energy-saving glass block features a prominent three-dimensional, diamond-shaped glass design on its surface.
