While Octatube has rounded off the engineering of the Bubble in Eindhoven, the prefabricated glass elevator shaft has been installed last week.
At the last day of the Glasstec in Dusseldorf Mick Eekhout will have a lecture about the cold twisting of glass.
The 'Bicycle Apple' at the train station of Alphen aan de Rijn has won the National Steel Award 2012 in the category utility. In collaboration with the architectural office KuiperCompagnons, Octatube has made the (technical) design.
By commission of K. Dekker BV, Octatube has installed the steel construction of 2 glass elevators for the future train station Almere Poort (part of the Flevolijn). The station has been designed by Prorail and will be used in December of this year.
Octatube has realized a challening glass canopy at the main entrance of the Inbal Hotel in Jerusalem (Israel). The architect (Michael Schwartz) was inspired by Japanese Origami, what resulted in a design consisting of folded surfaces. This architectural language fits really well to the façades of the existing hotel.
ctatube has been granted to realise different glass building parts for the Mauritshuis museum in The Hague, that is currently radically being reburbished after a design by Hans van Heeswijk architecten.
