Collection by Swisspearl

High performance skin


From Le Corbusier to Herzog & de Meuron and to Morphosis – Swisspearl® has always managed to inspire the great designers, and it shares with them the passion for producing a high-end design and exploring new possibilities. At Denver Botanic Garden an iconic structure raises awareness for important work in botanical and environmental research. Both form and skin of the building were inspired by natural phenomena – the former mimics the collision of two tectonic plates; the latter recalls the honeycomb pattern of a beehive composed of almost five hundred hexagonal Swisspearl® panels.
