When the Jersey City Hyatt Regency embarked on a guest room remodel at the height of the financial crisis, the project team was challenged to enhance the décor in a sustainable and fiscally responsible manner.  Their innovative solution revitalizes 1,200 existing wood bedside, accent, and coffee tables with Bendheim’s fire-polished glass surfaces in a deep chocolate brown color. Installation was completed by Eastchester Glass of Scarsdale, NY.

Bendheim’s precision cutting, polishing, tempering, and back-painting processes met the quality, cost and fast-track requirements of the project.  Tempered for additional safety and durability, the custom Color Coated glass coordinates with the existing furniture and reinvigorates the classic décor of the rooms. The ultra-hygienic glass surfaces offer hotel patrons additional comfort.
“We were looking to bring a new, exciting design element into the rooms while maintaining the integrity of the existing color palette and the relaxing atmosphere our customers have come to expect,” said Kierie L. Heim, Director of Sales and Marketing for Hyatt Regency. “Bendheim achieved the desired look and supplied the glass within record time to accommodate our challenging installation schedule.”
Bendheim offers its Color Coated glass in a virtually unlimited palette of colors, patterns and textures. The product’s aesthetics, durability, and inherent hygienic qualities make it an ideal choice for sustainable commercial, residential, healthcare, and hospitality projects. Applications include interior feature walls, backsplashes, and table tops, as well as exterior wall cladding.
Bendheim Color Coated glass is fully recyclable, isocyanate-free, and 100% VOC-free. The end result is an environmentally friendly and safe product with stable, durable, UV-resistant coatings formulated to last many years.
