An innovative glass water wall stands in front of a staircase in the entry lobby of the new design LAB headquarters in Gardena, California. The three glass panels are frameless and appear to float above the beach pebble covered basin. The floating glass allows water to drip in rivulets creating the pleasing sound of flowing water. A glass curtain wall system with brushed stainless steel “spider” brackets is used to support the glass panels. The water distribution header is concealed above the ceiling and the company logo is subtly etched on the backside of the center glass panel.
