Bernù Ice by Arconas/Berman Glass

Sept. 22, 2009

Arconas, a leader in seating design and engineering, and Joel Berman Glass Studios, renowned designer and manufacturer of decorative glass for architecture and design, collaborated to develop an unconventional seating product that showcases each company’s unique strengths.

The essence of the design is Arconas’ Award-winning Bernù seating line, a sleek unit featuring aeronautical shapes and an innovative peg construction system by Canadian Industrial Designer Davide Tonizzo. Typically, such seats are upholstered or finished in epoxy-coated steel or polished aluminum. Bernù Ice features seats and backs made from translucent resin cast in Berman’s Valencia texture. Glasslike in appearance, the surface-embossed resin combined with the dynamic, curvilinear metallic shapes of the Bernù structure lend a jewelry-like quality to the overall design.
