Hey Guys! I’ve got some big and exciting news over at the Dbh-biz.info studio. Our Team just attended the ASID Ruby Awards this past Sunday and ended the night with not one, but SIX awards!. I am so proud of this amazing team. Their hard work, mixed with uber-amounts of talent has produced gorgeous projects over the past years. And I am thrilled to see them recognized by their Interior Design industry peers within the American Society of Interior Designers this year.
When it comes to creating interiors that are equal parts luxurious and livable, I am always on the lookout for design houses that create gorgeous, yet durable, products. One vendor I can consistently count on to produce well-made, unique products is Vetrazzo: maker of one-of-a-kind glass countertops and surfaces. I have become a huge fan of Vetrazzo’s work over the years and have featured its countertops in some of my favorite interiors. I was thrilled when I received an invitation to the company’s headquarters in Georgia for an inside look at the manufacturing facilities.
I love to see how things are made especially so I fully understand what I am specifying for our clients and also so I can relate the story of where these materials come from first hand. The gracious design team at Vetrazzo, helmed by Maitena Labourdette (Process Engineer) and Alejandro Walters (Brand Manager) welcomed Michael and me for an all access tour. Learning about the process by which recycled glass becomes a new product from beginning to end was inspiring!
Here is a peek into our trip to Vetrazzo’s Tate, Georgia, facility (of course, full safety gear was required):
