Design Concept

Revered for its gleaming and translucent elegance, glass possesses an effortless power to create an aura of sophistication in any home. Dazzling aesthetics aside, this popular material is highly versatile as well. Etched, frosted or even stained; so many possibilities lie in store with glass. However, too much of a good thing can be overwhelming, and overusing glass is no different. A home clad in too much glass can project a cold and clinical image and in worse cases, may cause the entire space to lose its warmth.

This was the exact challenge posed to the designers from Plus Interior. They were engaged by a glass company to swathe a showllat with many different types of glass products. Their mission was to demonstrate the use of different glass types in a contemporary home and most importantly, retain the cosy atmosphere of a real home.

Setting up the scene in the glass company's factory, they built the showflat from scratch. In the living area, floors were decked in textured homogeneous tiles in a gorgeous dark hue. A jet-black L-shaped sofa ups the style quotient considerably. The flat-screen television is framed within a coloured glass panel and the back of the white glass feature panel is illuminated by cove lighting. When turned on, the outburst of light hits the glass at exactly the right angle, and provides a strong degree of visual interest.
