In order to translate his ideas into glass, Nabo has developed new, patented techniques of glass design: in 1989 photo-accurate sandblasting, 1994 glass painting with ground colored glass; In 2000, he received the Innovation Prize of the Glastec Düsseldorf for his splitter technique for the design of glass facades in connection with photovoltaics.


According to his design, a glass high-bay warehouse will be built in 2011/12 that carries itself energetically. The folded solar membrane made of photovoltaic modules and crash glass, designed by him, generates such high energy efficiency that the building is certified by the DGNB (German Sustainable Building Council) with gold.


In 2017, he will again design an ensemble of glass company buildings.
