Looking for electrically conductive glass (or other clear conductive material)

It's been three years since I looked into building myself something inspired by the amazing work of Ingo Maurer. I had a chance to sit at this table (on a bench similarly illuminated!) and it's amazing. It's solid and it's completely transparent. There are no visible wires, the electricity is conducted through the glass. It's by far the most impressive t hing I've ever seen using LEDs.

Three years ago when I first looked into it the only option I found was lab glass (I believe titanium oxide coated) that ran about $10 a square inch. Yikes.

But materials science moves on. To make my project feasible I'm looking for something with 80% transparency and less than 20ohms/square inch resistance. (And hopfully much less than $10/square). I've read about "FTO coated" and "ITO coated" but can't find anyone who sells it to individuals.

Any ideas? Names of possible suppliers, other materials to look into or random suggestions are most welcome.

I wonder what it would look like to layer something like this into a 3D LED cube.

Indium? It's used for smartphone screens.

Hi
Though this post is very old, I would like to tell that my company has developed such a conducting glass with about 80% transparency and less than 20ohms/square inch resistance. Also the price is much lower than $10/square. If you genuinely need it, then please let me know. I would be glad to supply it.

I need it for a science project.

Hi

I saw your post and I was interested in the fact that your company has developed such product for far less cost effective than the previous design. Can you please contact me at your earliest convenience please or send me the company name?

Hello! I am also interested in such a conducting glass, could you please send me the company name?

Hello! Would you please post a link to your website?

Oh, that sounds interesting - you should add a link to your site as well.

(Also, check your Inbox)

Help! I need conductive glass and don't know where to find it.
