JFK American Airlines terminal window glass
Every now and then we have a chance to work with something that is not just old and beautiful, but that also has significant historic ties to the community. The Robert Sowers Window, which is a famous abstract mosaic originally belonging to the American Airlines Terminal 8 – was designed by Robert Sowers and debuted at the Idlewild Airport (now known as the John F Kennedy airport) in New York in 1960.
More commonly known as the “Cathedral,” this beautiful piece has been a beacon of beauty and light to the community for decades. When the time came for it to retire, not only were we called upon to do the dismantling of this beautiful piece, but we also were also able to salvage some of it for our customers, as seen above. We have many glass panels still available; see some of the inventory here. Read more about the Sowers window here.
We love the strong, heavy antique horse paired with the elegant, delicate doors and windows in the picture above – what do you think of it?
