ARTWORK

As a medium for artistic expression the potential of glass is limitless. Rough or refined, luminous or opaque, delicate or dense, organic or engineered, for more than three decades, Keer has been dedicated to understanding and embracing the intricacies of glass. We're familiar with its idiosyncrasies and we know how to make its best qualities shine. Prominent artists including Jeff Koons, Maya Lin, Robert Wilson, Dale Chihuly, Kiki Smith, James Carpenter, and Sherrie Levine have teamed up with us to implement their ideas in this unique medium.

Bloomberg Headquarters Installation

In 1996 Bloomberg selected Michael Scheiner to create an original sculpture for the main atrium space in their 399 Park Avenue headquarters. Because this work had some unique engineering challenges Michael turned to Keer to help produce and install the glass. After the ceiling was modified to be able to handle the 5000 pounds of suspended blown glass tubing the keer team developed a flexible joint system to assure that none of the 600 feet of glass tube would be at risk of breaking. The blowing of the tubes was done in Rhode Island and then the Keer crew set up a temporary shop to accommodate custom cutting and fitting of the tubes as the sculpture evolved organically on site.
