Soba Demo, Tasting and Q&A with Sonoko Sakai More
Soba Noodle Workshop
Skyline hosted a series of three intimate evenings of Soba Noodle Making, including fresh noodle tastings with Sonoko Sakai – founder of Common Grains – in its new Chicago Merchandise Mart Showroom, Suite 1060. This was the first of many special events meant to inspire the design community and reinforce Skyline’s story of connecting with like-minded individuals.
Common Grains is an LA based project dedicated to providing people in the world with a deeper understanding and appreciation for Japanese food and culture with aims to share the traditions and pleasures of eating grains and vegetables within a healthy, sustainable lifestyle.
Sonoko demonstrated how to make soba noodles from the simple ingredients of buckwheat flour and water. She then coached as our guests handcrafted and cooked their own noodles.
To reap the benefits of their labor, participants savored Sonoko’s preparation of three soba dishes: Soba with Dipping Sauce, Soba Salad with Eggplant and Peaches, and Duck Soba Soup.
The evening celebrated simplicity, community, and the handmade cooking process.

Designing for Healthcare
On September 30th Skyline Design hosted a gathering for healthcare designers in its Merchandise Mart showroom, Suite 1060. The event centered on the life and work of Henry Domke, a physician-turned-photographer whose nature images inspire tranquility and healing in hospital settings.
An informal discussion shed light on Henry’s professional history, preferred photographing techniques, and insight on evidence-based design, including thoughts on the best themes and colors for patient healing.
Skyline has worked with Henry since 2007, transferring his remarkable artwork onto the medium of glass. And indeed, Henry’s art radiates on glass – his work in the showroom displayed this perfect union.

The initial launch represents the first phase of an ever-growing collection, with the work of new artists to be added.
Skyline Design is proud to build on its history of creating collaborative partnerships with celebrated artists, architects, designers and photographers, to realize their creative visions with architectural glass. For the Digital Glass Portfolio, Doug Fogelson, Bryan Nash Gill, Bill Sosin, and Herman Yu have drawn inspiration from the natural world, creating patterns and textures based in sources as varied as raindrops, tree rings, and skeletal winter branches. Other artists, including Jim Krantz, Anne Lindberg, Sonnenzimmer, and Thirst, redefine manmade elements—fabrics, letters, symbols—into immersive environments.

The Brooklyn Infusion Center by ZGF Architects utilizes glass for privacy and openness in individual "treatment pods" More
Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center (MSKCC) in New York recognized the stress involved with chemotherapy and the infusion process, and created the spa-like Brooklyn Infusion Center to eliminate waiting time while providing patients personalized care close to home.
The inviting facility features 12 unique treatment rooms, referred to as "pods," situated along the edges of a light-filled "Central Garden" lounge space. "We spent a lot of time with the idea of sanctuary," explains Jan Willemse, partner at ZGF. "New York is intense, as is therapy, so we created a variety of spaces that allow patients to choose whether to interact and be social or to remain more private."
ZGF chose a custom version of Skyline's Organics Asian Grass glass pattern for the sliding doors surrounding each treatment "pod." The pattern "provides some privacy, but maintains a visual connection."
Wendy Perchick, chief of strategic planning and innovation at MSKCC says, "A patient told me that he felt the healing intensified here because he was so relaxed."
