Client: One World Trade Observation Deck - New York, NY
Glass: Jockimo GlassSculpt™ glass flooring
Design: The Hettema Group
One World Trade is the main building of the rebuilt World Trade Center complex in Lower Manhattan, New York City. It is the tallest building in the Western Hemisphere, and the sixth-tallest in the world. The Hettema Group wanted to create a stunning visual effect where visitors would walk over the street below to show the height of the observation deck. They required an anti-slip glass flooring product with zero distortion on the top surface and zero distortion looking through the glass. As a result Jockimo developed our brand new GlassSculpt™ product for the project. This product provides the ultimate in visual transparency and also provides and anti-slip surface.
