Honored at NeoCon 2013 in the Surfacing Materials/Finishes Category
CARVART, a 20‐year‐old creative solutions company specializing in turnkey architectural glass products, is pleased to announce that their newest collection, CARVART Metallic, received a Best of NeoCon Silver Award in the Surfacing Materials/Finishes category at this year’s NeoCon World Trade Fair. An annual competition sponsored by Contract Magazine and The McMorrow Report, Best of NeoCon receives over 300 entries each year and awards products that are functional, flexible, innovative and provide a solution for the interior design industry. The jurors are made up of interior designers and architects, as well as , corporate, government, and institutional facilities executives.
CARVART Metallic is a collection of laminated glass products that encapsulate an authentic interlayer of metallic mesh for a striking—and potentially energy‐saving—sensory experience. The mesh is permanently fused between glass layers, offering a solution for a variety of applications, including interior and exterior walls and partitions, doors, and space delineation.
On the exterior, CARVART Metallic provides color, depth and beauty, reflecting solar energy and reducing a building’s solar heat gain. On the interior, the black side of the mesh effectively shades sunlight and reduces glare, yet maintains remarkably clear views to the exterior, making CARVART Metallic an excellent component of a building’s daylighting strategy. CARVART Metallic is UV and moisture resistant, meets ASTM standards for safety glass, and delivers an impressive acoustical STC rating of up to 41db.
"It was a pleasure to share our vision with the A+D community during NeoCon 2013 and we enjoyed receiving their enthusiastic approval,” says Edward Geyman, CEO of CARVART. “Being honored with the Silver Award for Surfacing Materials/Finishes by Contract Magazine made it that much more of an accomplishment.”
Heritage and tradition blended with creativity and innovation. Old world craftsmanship combined with new world cutting-edge execution. This is CARVART.
Led by Edward Geyman, CARVART has progressed from a mom-and-pop operation started over 20 years ago by father Anatoly Geyman out of a Brooklyn factory, into a thriving architectural glass business with clients from across the country and Europe. One thing remains unchanged from its small-company days – the Geyman touch – an unwavering commitment to providing expertise and personal enthusiasm for creative expression on every project.
