Star glaz­ing

Now show­ing: this trend sees glass ap­pear on imag­i­na­tive new forms, among them sheer stor­age chests and trans­par­ent tinted screens.

IN­TE­RIOR DE­SIGNER Kirsten Stanisich of Richards Stanisich (pic­tured with Belle in­te­rior de­sign ed­i­tor Lucy Mccabe) says the trans­parency of glass brings a unique di­men­sion to ob­jects. “Glass de­sign ob­jects are ap­peal­ing for in­te­ri­ors for so many rea­sons. They al­low for the trans­fer of light or re­flec­tion and the vis­ual con­nec­tion to the space, tex­tures or shape of ob­jects be­yond.” Her tips for de­ploy­ing glass in a liv­ing room? “Place a clear glass cof­fee ta­ble on a hand-knot­ted rug so its tex­tu­ral qual­ity and pat­tern is not lost un­der solid fur­ni­ture; sim­i­larly with a glass din­ing ta­ble and chairs. Glass light­ing can also be re­ally in­ter­est­ing, as its clear form dur­ing the day can trans­fer to a more solid el­e­ment once it is lit at night, and a dif­fer­ent mood and ex­pe­ri­ence.”
