LOS ANGELES, CA, March 2020 – Pulp Studio, the leading designers and manufacturers of technically superior decorative glass introduces PRECISION EDGE technology. PRECISION EDGE is a proprietary process exclusive to Pulp Studio delivering a high quality, zero-tolerance finish with perfect alignment for both tempered and annealed laminated glass handrails. “The exposed edges on glass handrails are an aesthetic detail you don’t want to overlook,” states Bernard Lax, founder and CEO of Pulp Studio. “Codes require that handrail glass be laminated, but high-quality edgework is still imperative for the integrity of the design. With PRECISION EDGE, designers and property managers do not have to accept a pre-polished laminate product when a better option is available.”
Pulp Studio offers a warranty on its edge work for post-tempering fabrication as there is no ASTM standard yet for this process. “We’ve built an expertise that is unique in the industry as Pulp Studio has post-polished tempered and laminated glass to achieve smooth edges since 1998,” states Lax. “That’s how we can warranty the glass to meet specification and performance for every project so that the client can be confident in the ultimate product.”

Founder and CEO Bernard Lax is a passionate advocate for the creative uses of glass as a building element and the brand’s defining mission from the beginning was to fill the void in the market for innovative uses of glass in interior and façade projects. Pulp Studio’s technique combines technical prowess with design sensibility; creating products that reside at the intersection of fashion and function.
Pulp Studio employs craftsmen, artists, scientists and inventors who view working with glass as an artistic endeavor – their medium being glass. The company’s capabilities include bending, hand-color coating, laser etching, glass carving, screen print imaging, drilling and notching, and a patented system for uniformly illuminating panels using high-intensity LEDs. Every project is another opportunity for Pulp Studio to further enrich the idea of ‘custom’ by delivering products that are superior in design and functionality.
One of the company’s insulated glass products, OmbraTM achieves a solar heat gain coefficient superior to that of other insulated glass units, dramatically reducing climate control requirements and providing significant energy savings over the life of a building. Working in collaboration with architects and design studios, Pulp Studio’s products have been used in numerous high-profile projects including the Seattle Space Needle, the Aquarium of the Pacific in Long Beach, California, the Wilshire Grand in downtown Los Angeles and the Gores Group Headquarters in Beverly Hills, California.
