Decorative glass adds character to architecture and interiors
Sophisticated architecture with large areas of glass offers planners and artists almost unlimited possibilities to vary colours, forms, patterns and structures. In the hands of creative architects the façade becomes an artist's canvas. The interplay of colours, motifs and geometric or freely designed expressive forms makes it possible to escape from constructive restraints. The interaction between glass and light – in reflection, transmission and absorption – opens up aesthetic and light-architectural effects that can be artistically combined with each other.
Even a simple creative design allows the noble material glass to shine in a completely new light. Its high resistance against ageing allows glass to last for generations without deterioration. Designing with glass, however, requires a high level of care and expertise – "glass does not forgive any mistakes". With our many years of experience, we stand by your side in the realization of your glass visions: creative, constructive, competent!
Glass design procedures
The range of possibilities for glass design has never been more extensive than it is today. On the one hand, long-standing and proven procedures are available, such as classical screen printing or sandblasting. On the other hand, there are completely new methods of glass design such as painted glass, acid-etched glass or ceramic digital printing.
The ceramic digital print is the optimum solution for a fast and economical glass design for indoor or outdoor usage. Based on specifications and preferences, the glass panels are decorated in high resolution using vivid colours.
As a strong alliance, AGC INTERPANE can thus offer a comprehensive range of products to its clients and partners. The opportunities for combining the procedures described here are almost unlimited. Versions are usually available in float glass, fully tempered glass, thermally toughened glass, laminated safety glass and insulating glass.
