TRANSLUCENT VENEER SYSTEM
While the art of lamination and veneering dates back to the pyramid-building
Egyptians, the use of translucent veneer systems (TVS) is a new
technique unique to Wilkie Sanderson.
Most dramatically visible
in the Bigelow Chapel
of the United Theological Seminary, TVS
is veneer that has been encapsulated in acrylic, resulting in
a distinctive aesthetic quality often described as ethereal.
