Solidor have introduced a new range of handmade glass to their already stunning range. Designed and manufactured exclusively for Solidor by Jo Downs – the internationally recognised fused glass designer – this is a genuine first in the door industry.

Based in Cornwall, Jo’s work draws inspiration from the beautiful coastal landscape, while her advanced fusion techniques allow for the creation of abstract designs of great individuality and depth as can be seen on these new exclusive tiles.

Gareth Busson, head of sales and marketing at Solidor explained the idea behind the new range. ‘Each Solidor is unique and handcrafted and so we wanted to develop a range of glass designs that mirrored that ethos. By integrating Jo’s vision into our doors we have taken Solidor on to another level. In effect, the door now becomes a frame into which is hung a unique work of art.’

This range of handmade square and round tiles will be made available to create a bespoke glass design in the Beeston, Flint 4, Ludlow 2 and Stirling Solidor composite doors. These options will also be added to the interactive Door Designer and on Solidor Cloud 2.0 for online ordering.

Jo Downs was keen to highlight the partnership and commented: ‘Bespoke interior glass design has always been my passion, so the opportunity to work with a market leader and strong design brand like Solidor really appealed to me. I’m looking forward to seeing clients enhance their home entrances with beautiful designs that I have created exclusively for them.’

Gareth Busson concluded: ‘This is the first time that any door company has ever launched a glass range with an internationally recognised designer and it’s been a pleasure working with Jo. This fully reflects our commitment to offering the most design led entrance doors in the sector, while our trade partners will benefit from a genuine point of product differentiation.’
