Not a frame design, but an install job we are quite proud of.
The work by Idris Kahn is 3 lites of tempered glass with a phrase stamped on the surface of each using oil based inks.
The brackets are made specifically for each piece. The entire piece weighs about 220 lbs.
It took 2 of us 4.5 hours to uncrate and install.
This is the only piece that has been installed by someone other than the people from the gallery that represents Kahn.
The piece is roughly 60" tall X 50" wide (it's all in metric).
This is a B&W photo taken of the piece when it was installed in the gallery. The color of the inks is a dark sapphire.

I was, that's why I hired the best to work with on this.
The installation instructions were incredibly detailed.

I only have a Dropbox file and have no idea as to how to lift a single page from that. Here's a quick rendering of the lower bracket anchor. The bracket slides down on this with no play at all and a perfect flush fit. The upper ones are similar but slide on from the side once the lites are in place using a temporary anchor on the side.
