C&H Glassworks custom installation of "Mod Cocoons" for the dining area of the Mariposa Restaurant in Beverly Hills, California
Acclaimed Colorado glass design, manufacturing and installation studio C&H Glassworks created a stunning, high-end glassworks installation designed by Lonnie Hanzon of Hanzon Studios, for luxury department store Nieman Marcus in Beverly Hills. Entitled “CRYSTALIS,” the glassworks installation was created especially for Nieman Marcus (for the restaurant Mariposa) at its gorgeously renovated Beverly Hills location at 9700 Wilshire Boulevard in Beverly Hills, California.
The sculptural ‘Mod Cocoons’ of CRYSTALIS envelop two seating areas in Mariposa’s stunning new renovated space. The cocoons incorporate over 1,000 pieces of fine, meticulously hand-blown glass by C&H Glassworks for the project – and over 8,000 components in all.
The final installation features clear, pure glass ‘beads’ curtaining the booths and the effect is truly stunning, a symphony of light and glass surrounding the diners.” The hand-crafted beads are created from molten glass, with each bead individually shaped to enhance its beauty, impact and fluidity. A supportive network of stainless steel cable, bars and fittings, Lucite and vinyl spacers, and various chrome parts then transform the beads into a striking backdrop for dining and conversation.
