Through its inherent properties, glass can create mirages and illusions. The Atelier has built on these qualities to develop original applications.
"Kinetic glass" is inspired by the "moving eye-kinetic art" movement of the 1950s whose members - artists such as Soto, Riley and Vasarely – developed new perspectives which incorporated the spectator's movements and optical illusion.
Glass is the ideal vector for kinetics. Its properties of transparency, colour, opalescence, and reflection enrich this artistic aesthetic by creating surprising optical effects of depth, vibration, movement and shimmer, appearance and disappearance.
The filtering and reflective properties of "kinetic glass" can be finely adjusted, making it a perfect medium for providing shade or varying the amount of light filtering through.
This patented technique, developed by the Atelier, can be used to create opaque panels, transparent or translucent partitions, and facades.
This is a relatively inexpensive process when applied to high-volume production.
Screenprinting is an industrial printing process whose numerous effects can be combined.
Colour: using opaque or translucent ink.
Frosting: using stencilling then sandblasting or translucent ink.
Metal effect: using catalytic deposition or metallic ink.
The low cost of high-volume production makes this a popular technique for facades or office partitioning.
