Transparency, as used in social contexts, implies openness, communication, and all seeing. Similarly, glass has the same characteristics in an interior setting. Glass becomes one with the structure of a building, allowing connection to the outside and inside spaces. It is a material that allows clear connection throughout a space or to create privacy with translucent glass. Softening light and playing on shadow, creating a more intimate space.
Understanding the very nature of materials in a space and the impact of light, shadow and the inner working balance with other materials in a room, makes an interior pop or flop. Glass is one of my favourite materials to work with, because it is multifaceted in its use and works in any context or design. It is is adaptable and can work in a modern interior, eclectic interior or stark modernist space. It all comes down to the way in which the material is detailed, to carry off the rest of the interiors design language. It’s a way of adding that extra something something, without adding anything at all.
HOW TO CREATE THE LOOK
Any in which way you like as there is no wrong way in this scenario. Either a glass desktop or dining table to make a small space feel large. Or glass door handles to add luxe to your space.
A door and sidelight entry divided into panels, equally divided into sections of three, with translucent and clear glazed black framed sections for an industrial edge. Or glazed panels, edged in rose gold with a mirrored surface for a feminine touch of class.
The sky is the limit, have fun.
