This is why OmniDecor, relying on the sensitivity of the Setsu & Shinobu Ito Studio, has further confirmed glass as an ancient but ever renewed material, to experiment with effects and atmospheres which are both hi-tech and charged with the spirit of nature. The need to touch, and the essence of nature. The distinctively eclectic DecorFlou Design by OmniDecor, already established on the market with specific patterns by international designers, was the perfect launching platform, with a pattern designed and created specifically for this project.The Frottage technique, meant to capture the essence of nature in its uncompromised purity, perfectly reproduces the look and feel of water surfaces, entrapping them in glass. DecorFlou Design glass panes by OmniDecor are a sophisticated interplay of acid-etching, designs, etchings and transparencies, to enrich environments with lightness, luminosity and evocative atmospheres.
