Work Better's Chicago board room and Liquid Crystal Glass


Work Better’s Lake Michigan Board room has been one of our flagship rooms since the location’s opening in 2009. This room is one of 108 offices and meeting rooms at our Willis Tower location, which is one of the few spaces in the city that is LEED® certified. Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) is one of the most popular green building certification programs used worldwide. LEED includes a set of rating systems for the design, construction, operation, and maintenance of green buildings that aims to help building owners and operators be environmentally responsible and use resources efficiently. (Wikipedia)  

Towering on the 84th floor, this 20 person board room has a breathtaking view of Lake Michigan and the city below. Besides the view, many people’s favorite feature of the board room is the Liquid Crystal Glass (smart glass). The glass that encloses the room is transparent until you switch the button to make it translucent/foggy (for privacy). When we showcased this feature in 2009, it was one of the few places in the country that had this technology. This board room was also named “Top 10 Meeting Rooms in the World” by LiquidSpace.   

So what exactly is Liquid Crystal Glass and how does it work? “The liquid crystal Suspended Particle Device (SPD) contains molecular particles suspended in a solution between plates of glass. In their natural state, the particles move randomly and collide, blocking the direct passage of light. When energized, the particles align rapidly and the glazing becomes transparent." (Glazette)

 The only way to really see how cool this technology is is to see it in person, and you can book a tour here to do just that. You can also rent this room for $100 an hour. In the meantime, enjoy the photos below.
