The Fountains of Bellagio are sited in an eight-acre lake located in front of the Bellagio Hotel. The idea and character for the fountain were conceived by Mr. Steve Wynn, Chairman of Mirage Resorts, who commissioned WET Design to realize his objectives for the fountain's site. 
The Project took form in the summer of 1995, when Mr. Wynn, together with Mark Fuller and Claire Kahn of WET Design, determined the feature's essential character. Among the Project's objectives was the concept of creating a work that would be vibrantly kinetic and elating for visitors, while expressing the  romantic spirit of Bellagio. 
The result of the collaboration between Mr. Wynn and the WET Design team is the most ambitious water feature ever conceived in terms of choreographic complexity and scale.
Located within the lake and spanning 1,000 feet in length is an array of over 1,000 water expressions and over 4,000 individually programmed white lights. And that is where Jeannette Specialty Glass comes into play.  With our distinctively durable glass lenses, WET Design and our team of glass specialists joined forces to create a Fresnel lens that would enhance the reflections of the white lights to create an unforgettable effect.

The borosilicate formulation and angle of our lens composition allows optimum reflections to be produced for this masterpiece.  As our lenses enhance the aesthetics of the Bellagio Fountains, they are also strong and durable enough to take the constant heat of the light fixtures and the coolness of the water by being   thermal shock resistant.  Jeannette Specialty Glass's special borosilicate    formulation makes all of our glass lenses and products ideal for a variety of custom design and commercial projects.  The simplicity of the layout of water elements and the variety of vertical water expressions available in the fountain allow for breadth and variety in the fountain's kinetics. The result is a rich and dynamic collection of performances in water, each unique and expressive.
