Achieve Great Things Together
Impressive buildings using large-format glass can also be found outside of major cities – an example is the new Wagner Design Lab in Langenarnafnack (Bavaria, Germany). The slender steel frame Supports the exhibition hall, it looks like a floating stage. This impression is also enhanced by the two 120-square-meter glass facades on the long sides, each of which is only made of triple-glazed, two-cavity insulating glass as panels. The insulating glass with a length of about 20 meters is the largest insulating glass panel in the world so far.
Design and architecture in harmony: the Wagner-designed laboratory of seating furniture manufacturer Topstar/Wagner (located in Langeneufnach near Augsburg) is a design laboratory and showroom for chairs and other furniture. Architect Titus Bernhard's (Augsburg)'s the concept: a cuboid built on top of the Wagner family's former residence, which appears completely open on its two long sides thanks to the large glass panels. This highlight comes from the glass manufacturer sedak in the same area, which produced four three-glass two-cavity insulating glass for the new exhibition hall, each with a size of 3.04×19.21 meters. The glass structure is made of tempered laminated glass with a double cavity, and the glass has a thermal insulation coating.
This creates two insulating glass curtain wall panels of 117 square meters. The insulating glass adopts a Super Spacer Triseal three-way airtight sealing spacer. This integrated elastic spacer greatly simplifies the installation of super large format insulating glass, produced by Jumbo size automatic insulating glass production line. The processing technology does not have the troubles of traditional hard spacer handling and upper frame, produced by Ordinary type automatic insulating glass production line. The super spacer insulating glass has no plugs on the four sides to achieve continuous sealing. The three-way sealing structure also ensures that the butyl group does not move, which becomes a guarantee for long-term sealing. Finally, It is also very beautiful, with no joints, and no butyl overflow, and the matte material also eliminates the visual interference of the spacer itself on the architectural design...
The Wagner Design Laboratory is the first building in the world to use this super-sized insulating glass. So far, large-scale landmark buildings have mostly been realized in the United States, Arabia, and other parts of Asia. "We are delighted that we are now receiving more and more inquiries", says Sedak's managing director Bernhard Wie, "and now even in the vicinity of our headquarters, following the use of 17 meters of glass at the trade fair building in Frankfurt, This showroom is the second architectural project in Germany to use oversized glass in a short period.
The Friendly Cooperation
The project was realized through close cooperation between the companies. In the Design Lab, Wagner impressively demonstrated the power of joint innovation to lead to superior results. These two groundbreaking companies have achieved great things together by leveraging each other's vision and courage. "The large glass represents the big idea behind the project," explains Peter Wagner, managing director and co-owner of the furniture manufacturer. The glass facade and the displayed furniture thus form a harmonious relationship. The high transparency of the facade creates An open view, maximum openness – an impression that also reflects the furniture and emphasizes Wagner’s quality standards. The installation of glass panels on the façade in March 2020 is an important milestone – the opening of the showroom is planned for this summer.
Since its founding in 2007, the glass processing company Sedak (Gersthofen) has developed with a pioneering spirit into a high-quality manufacturer of large-scale insulating glass and safety glass, and has marketed glass as a building material for fully glazed facades and roofs. Sedak provides glass for iconic buildings around the world. As a full-service glass manufacturer, it has established cooperation with architects, building owners, facades, and metal builders, and through its innovative products, it contributes to the fantastic buildings of the future. contribute.
Topstar, a subsidiary of seating furniture manufacturer Topstar (Langenneufnach), and the premium brand Wagner focus on providing people with well-being, combining design, sport, and wellness. Through continuous research and development, Wagner has created a patented invention that redefines healthy sitting through motion - anywhere people place a high value on the quality of their daily lives. Sporty design, sitting motion!
Top glass processing: sedak offers glass panels up to 3.6 x 20 meters in size and is thus the largest in the world.
Combination of design and architecture: 233.6 square meters of glass opens up a wide field of view on the long side of the cuboid, providing an ideal display environment for exhibits.
This is a milestone: the huge insulating glass was installed in Langenneufnach using a unique installation technique.
