skyline design presents ‘glass gradients’ – a family of etched and printed patterns for glass application created by dutch designers scholten & baijings. the collection which is exhibited at the NEOCON 2016 design exposition, showcases the materials transparent properties which have been achieved using a variety of innovative techniques.

the ‘glass gradients’ detail two geometric forms including a dot and a square, which have been applied vertically and horizontally forming a repeated pattern across the material. although transparent, the use of these precise shapes creates a greater level of privacy, providing creative solutions for open-plan layouts.

the balanced nature of the designs are enriched though subtle color variants. these combinations have been applied using an environmental etching process to create the translucent appearance as well as an ‘ast printing’ technique on the opposite side of the glass. the opaque and transparent options conceal ones visions creating an interplay between density and scale and movement.

the graphic markings reveal a new spatial context transforming different interiors in new and unexpected ways. the customizable designs convey a sense of surprise and movement — concealing or revealing any given space. the grid-like patterns act as an architectural element which encourages play and personalization within a given set of variables.
