The affection in creating bespoke art works had been around for centuries. We at ArtéGlas has committed to ensure that this wonderful artistry across decorative arts and furnishings stays in this generation and the many next. Our joy is to provide an art piece exclusively handcrafted - for you and you alone.
Our projects have ranged from modest customizations to major bespoke art installations for private residences and hospitality industry. Synergraphic Design, the home brand of ArtéGlas, has over 38 years wealth of experience in handling commissioned bespoke projects.
When it comes to commissioning a bespoke project, there’s no doubt that the process can seem tedious. Here at ArtéGlas, we've simplified the journey for you.
Your desired glass art - we make it happen.
UNDERSTANDING THE BRIEF
We will first need to understand from you the following:
Information on space (images and drawings)
Reference images of desired glass art
Your personal preferences and objective for the piece (i.e. conversation piece, symbols of family, etc)
Establish overall dimensions, design style, desired effect including colors, textures, preferred glass techniques, lighting required if any
Here we will advise whether a proposed project is technically feasible and identify any potential risks.
Once we establish design parameters, our estimations team create a bespoke quotation.
The quotation will break down the total price and lead time required to carry out the works proposed. This ensures from an early stage that the works fall within the proposed project budgets and lead times. If these do not fall within the budget, we return to Stage 2.
Once the order is confirmed, a project coordinator is assigned.
Our design team is led by Florence Ng, founder of Synergraphic and acting Creative Director, who has over 35 years of glass working experience to draw from.
Throughout the design stage, our studio team will submit drawings for your approval. These form the starting point for a unique project and allow the initial ideas to be reviewed and modified quickly and without a significant commitment of resources.
Depending on the size and complexity of the project, the process may take weeks or even months. Our customers demand perfection and this is not something that can be rushed.
We are experienced at coordinating all of our site movements with the necessary parties and hold the required certification to work on construction sites.
For homeowners, the brief would usually require further development. Our team will provide a consultation service, free of charge. This is limited to establishing the optimum glass working technique and design style to satisfy your’ technical requirements, budget and design.
This service will establish the parameters of the project, so that we can provide an accurate quotation for services.
We have a vast sample library and images of completed past projects and/or other image references that will enable the homeowner to visualise and make a decision on the style / glass technique to be used.
Should you decide that an alternative finish is desired after viewing the sample then we return to Stage 2.
Note: A bespoke sample may be chargeable, depending on the glass and labour required to make it.
Should you require our team to install their glass, a site survey is carried out. We will ascertain the exact dimensions of the space, any site accessibility restrictions and environmental conditions.
After the drawings have been agreed on, we create a control sample for approval by you, ensuring all parties share a common vision of the finished article.
Should you decide against the control sample, the design will be reviewed.
DELIVERY & INSTALLATION
Our team of experienced craftsmen and installers ensure that all glass works are packed, handled and transported with the highest level of care.
If sea or air freight is required, we construct bespoke, hand-made crates for each project. This affords the glass extra protection as the crate is designed specifically to carry its contents.
