Kolbe presents the VistaLuxe Collection at AIA 2013
Wausau, Wis. (June 2013) – Kolbe introduces the VistaLuxe™ Collection, collaboratively developed with architects specifically for contemporary designs that utilize multiple units to create large expanses of glass. This new product line highlights the quintessential Modern aesthetic with crisp, clean lines distinctively conveyed with the warmth of wood.
Casements, awnings, direct set windows, inswing and outswing doors and matching transoms are featured as the debut products in Kolbe's VistaLuxe Collection. A choice of two profiles is offered: the smoothly aligned Flush style or the setback Accent style. Minimal, narrow frames optimize daylight openings and maximize viewing areas, while maintaining energy efficiency. The glass remains on the same plane for a consistent appearance across the different products in the VistaLuxe Collection.
"Appealing to design-savvy homeowners, the new VistaLuxe Collection gives architects the flexibility to harmoniously combine multiple units into unique, compatible configurations, while maintaining symmetry and sightlines," says Cindy Bremer, Kolbe's vice president of marketing. "Clean, fluid lines are delivered by the narrowest of frames. On a 3-by-6-foot casement, the vision area is 82% of the total window."
Kolbe unveils its VistaLuxe Collection on June 20 in Denver at the American Institute of Architects (AIA) national convention and design exposition in Booth #334. This eye-catching display showcases custom-mulled configurations incorporating inswing doors, casements, awnings and direct set windows with LoE2-270 glass. One side of the display stretches 110 inches wide by 98 inches tall and highlights the Flush style profile. The other side spans 78-by-80 inches and features the Accent style profile. Various hardware and finish options complement the maple interior.
Bremer adds, "Spectacular views deserve to be enjoyed through expansive, attractive windowscapes that capture a sophisticated elegance. The VistaLuxe Collection is guided by a simple purpose: to allow the view to take center stage. These products serve to elevate the homeowner's experience and to enhance the home itself."
