GIM Glass Inlaid Marble

GIM Glass Inlaid Marble


Glass Inlaid Marble was originated by designer Ben Galloway after a visit to Venice and the glass-blowing island of Murano in 2000.

Panels of marble are waterjet cut and inlaid with a glass compound. The inlaid design is translucent and consequently can be backlit to stunning effect. Never before have these two beautiful materials, marble and glass, been combined in this way.

Glass Inlaid Marble was first seen in the UK in 2001 with the opening of ‘Eclipse’ a chain of fashionable cocktail bars in London. In 2006, Glass Inlaid Marble was adopted for the centerpiece of the InterContinetal London Park Lane following a multi-million pound refurbishment program. Both projects are illustrated in the Showcase section of this website.
