Beyond the Looking Glass: Another Dimension in Lighting Design

From its transparency and striking look to its inherent versatility, the use of glass in architectural design seems to be everywhere, and for good reason. Designers have evolved from using glass just as building material; it has become more of a design feature within homes and commercial spaces for the upper echelon client.

A little history: In the 19th century, various types of fancy glass became significant branches of the decorative arts. Glass is used not only for traditional objects such as vessels (bowlsvasesbottles, and other containers), paperweightsmarbles, and beads, but also in sculpture and installation art as well. While glass is sometimes painted, colored or stained glass is also popular.

The term “Murano Glass” defines glass produced on the island of Murano, near Venice, Italy. There are many different manufacturers, both past and present, based on Murano. The history of Murano Glass began in 1291.

Here at ADG, we take pride in the craftsmanship of our glass lights and sconces. Check out some of our work here. Also watch this short video clip for a little insight into the glass blowing process.

The following iron work, bronze light fixtures, glass lights and all details are designed and manufactured by ADG Eco and are sold factory direct. Trade pricing available upon request. For more information, contact the team at Architectural Detail Group at 818-597-9494 or email
