Balance, rhythm and harmony are the basic tenets of interior design which help create any environment. A specific area is shaped not only by color, but also pattern, texture and the performance requirements of the space.
Glass can help a designer achieve these basic tenets, while serving as a conduit to allow more light to permeate the room as well as adding an extremely focused decorative element. Glass is a material desired by most designers because of the inherent sustainability characteristics, its modern aesthetic and the flexibility to respond to different design requirements.
Until today, no single glass manufacturer has created a strategy to concentrate on interior glass solutions, while providing the design community a robust and sophisticated package of tools and products to create environments – using glass. Guardian Industries will unveil a new glass portfolio and online tools for architects and designers who specify interior glass at NeoCon Booth No. 7-6046, June 13-15 at the Merchandise Mart in Chicago.
Guardian InGlass (http://www.guardianinglass.com) brings together Guardian’s entire interior product line to allow designers and others the opportunity to experience the variety of glass in one place. The portfolio features interior glass products diverse in texture and color as well as infused with properties that optimize performance. Now, interior designers can choose from a variety of interior glass that can increase comfort, improve safety, conserve energy, reduce maintenance, resist wear as well as make a statement. Guardian InGlass provides the platform to allow designers to incorporate glass in almost any environment in any interior application from walls and partitions and showers, to elevators and escalators and more; right from their desktop.
Intuitively organized, visually pleasing and highly interactive, the website makes it easy to browse application ideas, evaluate options, select products, consult experts, and purchase glass that takes projects to the next level. It also connects designers with fabricators, glaziers and others to assist them to make their design concepts a reality
“The InGlass website is an online resource that directly responds to needs voiced by architectural and design professionals,” said Diane Turnwall, market segment director of Interiors for Guardian. “We created http://www.GuardianInGlass.com for architects and designers to unlock the potential of glass through access to knowledge, products and services that will help bring their creative projects to life.”
