One North Wacker, UBS Tower

One North Wacker, UBS Tower

Chicago, IL

One North Wacker, UBS Tower is a 50-story, 199 m (653 ft) skyscraper at One North Wacker Drive in Chicago, Illinois
The key was to design spaces that create a mix of multi-functional areas for more social and collaborative interactions allowing employees to select their workspace.

The tower's most eye-catching feature is its main lobby. The lobby's glass wall was a first in the United States. The 40-foot (12 m) wall was made out of 5' x 5' glass panes attached to a system of medallions and cable which imbues the lobby with an almost transparent appearance.

eos LightPanel™ Systems collaborated with the architect to highlight the glass wall by creating a custom size GRAPHIX MEDIA FRAME SYSTEM in an enormous 114" x 70" that would hold images in the corresponding size that would showcase the striking glass features of this monumental building
