Willow Glass Back Splashes

Corning® Willow®Glass was the perfect fit for an artistic feature wall


When you’re one of the nation’s top independent financial advisory firms, you see things before others. That same foresight went into Mariner Holdings’ new headquarters. They examined every way they could create the perfect space – ways to draw the best talent and respond to future technology. Tired of tearing down walls as their company evolved, they wanted a solution with future flexibility.

With the future in mind, they used Passive Optical Network (PON) throughout their space for unlimited bandwidth. PON also installed in a fraction of the time of conventional copper networks.

Corning® Willow® Glass back splashes provide sophistication in the coffee bar as well as being the ultimate tool to express their culture. They held a contest among employees to design a creative artwork for the massive feature wall, with the winning design being an interpretation of the Mariner logo. DIRTT painted the artwork onto micro-thin Willow Glass and applied it to DIRTT wall tiles. It was installed on the 40-foot-long by 14-foot-high wall with the exacting precision demanded by an artwork.
