Transparency is not just a simple optical characteristic, but the simultaneous perception of different spaces. The space withdraws and fluctuates in a continuous activity. The position of the transparent figures has an ambiguous meaning because each figure now appears as the nearest, now as the farthest one.
The culture of glass
Living in Wellness: how light affects mood
Daylight and its chromatic composition have immediate effects on the brain processing of the emotions. Therefore, optimizing the use of natural daylight improves the internal and emotional well-being. Recent studies have shown that the light spectrum not only affects the mood, but has also an immediate effect on the perception of emotions.
The partition and complementation of the spaces with extra elements in clear or extra-clear glass allow the daylight to penetrate and spread in the home and workplace, creating a relaxed and pleasant atmosphere.
Sliding doors in low-iron glass are a good solution even with limited space, as they do not divide the different areas ‘visually’ but functionally. They do not require a building intervention and are available in different versions (more or less opaque, coloured or printed glass, withvisible guide rails, fixed and moving parts).
Glass processing techniques
Bonding, an adhesive technique also known as UV bonding, enables the creation of extremely durable furnishing accessories with a tensile strength of approximately 17 N/mm². Innovative adhesives are used which, when exposed to UV light, harden rapidly, forming imperceptible layers of transparent glue.
Glass is hand-assembled entirely by our skilled workers, who with extreme precision and expertise produce every day showcases, tables, display windows and much more with 45 and 90 degrees welding.
