There are plenty of design trends that have proven to be short-lived – fading away just as fast as they came onto the scene. It’s the simple, yet luxurious architectural details that tend to stand the test of time because of the ongoing demand for upgraded features. After all, that’s what sets the magnificent apart from the mediocre — and achieving this level of luxury is now easier than ever.
In general, products that give an elevated energy to their environment are important for builders and designers to consider. Not only do they provide an aesthetic appeal but they also add value to the spaces in which they are used. Innovative back-painted glass is a great example of this type of product. For example, Lacobel T and Matelac T by AGC Glass North America are the first tempered back-painted glass products that offer an easy way to create a luxurious effect.
Glossy and Satin-finish Aesthetics
With a range of 10 trendsetting, glossy and satin-finish colors, back-painted glass achieves a contemporary look for building interiors and exteriors. Lacobel T provides a high gloss luxurious look while Matelac T has a more subtle satin-finish. These tempered back-painted glass products are strong, safe, and highly resistant to heat, thermal shock and UV, so it’s suitable for use in both interior and exterior applications.
Back-painted glass products are an easy way to realize virtually unlimited designs, no matter what part of the project they are specified for.
