Transparent design exudes an indefinable, ethereal glow.
Why? Most certainly, crystalline elements – whether lighting, furniture, or accessories – lend a halcyon cool to any space. Providing a sense of calm, a hushed serenity, a bit of mystery. They are undeniably expressive pieces of design.
Yet perhaps this intangible something is best attributed to the fact that these pieces offer a new perspective. For example, light and shadow interact differently when filtered through a clear glass orb than a cloth shade; peer through a transparent stool and you’ll see the room transform. Rather than blending into a space, they quietly enhance and illuminate their surroundings.
Luckily, there are variety of ways to explore this surprisingly versatile aesthetic: from centuries-refined Italian glasswork to forward-thinking clear polycarbonate dining chairs. We love that transparency is both timeless and modern, easy to incorporate yet entirely distinctive.
