VAKKO Fashion Center

image001

The Vakko Fashion Center has double glazed, insulated windows in which the outer pane of glass has been slumped. The mold contained heating coils in an X pattern. The glass pane was heated on both sides under controlled conditions and deformed under its own weight. The deformation is about 3.5-4 centimeters out from the original surface and adds stiffness to the glass.
