CORNING, N.Y. – Several Corning facilities in the U.S. are featuring SnapCab® Pod office spaces of the future and SnapCab® Portal collaboration spaces featuring Corning® Gorilla® Glass. The Pod and Portal debuted at North America’s design exposition and conference for commercial interiors, (NeoCon) this past summer – where both products attracted great attention and the Pod received the Silver Award in the “Workplace Technologies” category.
“Office interiors are moving towards more open and collaborative work environments,” said Kimberly O’Connor, Business Development Manager, Corning® Gorilla® Glass for Interior Architecture. “These SnapCab products offer a flexible solution that allows privacy, additional meeting space, and also encourages an interactive and collaborative work experience.”
Corning’s Interior Architecture team and SnapCab®, a paneling system company, have worked together since 2013 on a variety of interior architecture applications that feature Corning Gorilla Glass. Initial work focused on elevator interiors and lobby walls and recent work has expanded into furniture pieces such as the Portal and Pod.
