Functionality and Design Ideas for Digital Glass

There are a variety of applications where you can use / incorporate digital glass. Below are a few ideas that just might inspire you for your next project. Click here for more information about digital glass and the possibilities.

Backsplashes in Breakrooms

Breakrooms should be the place where employees can visit, grab a bite to eat and reenergize. Why not take your client’s breakroom to the next level and make a statement. It is often a place that could use a little more creativity. There are now more options than ever before for designing a welcoming space for your client’s employees. The image above is front lit which looks great. Imagine what your project would look like if it was backlit. It would definitely make a statement.

The breakroom is a great place to back light the digital glass. If you backlight your backsplash and you are into smart technology you can control the backlights and dim them manually or put them on a schedule to dim and brighten throughout the day. It is amazing how dimming / brightening the light can change the mood of the entire room. 

Corporate Signage & Wayfinder Signage

Do you have a corporate theme or a theme for the interior of the building you are designing? Just about every office has a design theme or it did when it was originally built and or designed. Often time the tenants are allowed to “make the space their own.” If you are looking to design or redesign a space, you will most likely be looking for corporate signage and wayfinder signs. Maybe you need a corporate logo placed prominently in the lobby or above the reception desk. Have you thought about printing the sign on glass and backlighting it? This will truly make a statement as your clients and patrons walk by.

Once inside the building, you will most likely need directional signage and why not print digitally on glass to match your design space. You can add art and functionality and make a statement. In addition to the text, you can add your client’s logo, picture of a product or service they offer or any other branding element.

We are often asked if digital glass can be installed outside. The answer is “yes” as it is tempered and UV rated to withstand the elements such as the sun, wind and rain. So you can design and have installed digitally printed glass for your outdoor signage.
