Amazing wall design example
What will happen if you take modern materials and latest print technology and combine them in decor project (or prototype in this case)? I asked myself this question looking at photo of yellow couch and plastic reflective shelves. Here is what I come up with.
Modern technology allows printing on any flat surface. It can be wooden board, aluminum plate, cardboard (why would I print on it?..) and glass. I already have experience with prints on aluminum and my customers are familiar with their scratch and finger prints resistance. Colors look great. They are thin and light. But what if I don’t need thin surface? I want something different… How about glass?
I kept thinking about glass whole weekend and did research about printing on glass. No problem. Can be done! I can print on glass and mount it on foam core or painted wooden box depending on distance from wall I need to achieve. Good news!
Next, how about getting light in dark rooms? Modern condos
I want my pictures to lit themselves. Not like shopping windows but like art in modern designed space. I made a research. Can be done! They even can be deemed to your liking! Or you may switch a color. Isn’t it amazing?
Here is an example of the design. Summary: Color prints on glass; float mount 1 inch from wall; one piece is glowing with switch on a floor (or behind the couch) and powered through standard wall outlet.
My very rough estimation is around $3k. What do you think?
About The Photo
I made this shot in December 2011 in Little Italy area in Toronto. I remember it was cold and getting late. My hands were already stiff from cold and I wanted tea :) Good memories anyway
