Glaverbel presents design trends in glass at ZOW 2oo3

Decorative surfaces made of glass have definitely caught on in the furniture industry, interior design and shop fitting, providing eye-catching decorative elements in objects ranging from sitting room or kitchen furniture to table tops and sliding doors, shelves and bathroom or wall fittings, or partitions.

Glass is also versatile, being transparent or matte, brightly coloured or discreet. It sets spaces off beautifully, plays with light and opens up fresh perspectives. At the ZOW 2oo3 exhibition in Bad Salzuflen, one of Europe's leading flat glass manufacturers, the Brussels-based Glaverbel group, will be presenting the latest ideas for products and design trends involving flat glass surfaces. Glaverbel's Lacobel, Lacomat, Matelux and Imagin Geometrics ranges offer a wide range of individual design options for the furniture of tomorrow. Safety, at both the glass processing stages and in applications, is always accorded central importance.

The current trend is towards glass surfaces in elegant, bright, translucent or silky matte hues which perfectly set off fashionable woods, like maple, ash and wild pear, or contrast strikingly with dark woods. This season's theme is "Ice Pearl": finishes such as ice blue, mint green, fjord white, aluminium, titanium and silver are all the rage in 2003. The modern surfaces crafted by Glaverbel look classy and provide a fresh slant on furniture design. Their sophistication is underscored by square, teardrop-shaped or wavy geometric textures. The silky matte finish and transparent look of glass surfaces are just perfect for the trend towards minimalism, simplicity and clarity of form. Glass is elegant and lends depth to spaces, shimmering as it adopts all the colours of the rainbow and changes its appearance under different lighting conditions, making it a veritable chameleon among surfaces.
