Based in Vancouver, Canada, Joel Berman Glass Studios has gained international recognition for their innovative work with architectural and textured glass, having done huge projects worldwide.
Canadianintertiors.com describes Plank as exhibiting “the characteristics of authentic wood grain with translucency. The flow of pattern and undulations mimic the properties of authentic wood grain while eliminating the fading, cracking, warping and other signs of degradation typically seen in wood. Plank celebrates this ubiquitous and timeless material through an abstracted communication in glass.”

The studio has been operative for over 25 years and has a long list of high profile clients such as Lufthansa, AT&T, DKNY and Ritz Carlton. Founder Joel Berman finds inspiration in religious and ethnic diversity, calling his work Design Without Borders. His hope is that the pieces his studio produces will reflect these values and help to foster intercultural understanding.
