It's the most wonderful time of the year. Yes, that's right, NeoCon. Fabulous products, showrooms revisited, old friends reunite, new friends are made and all the while happiness ensues. Among all of that, we look for products that catch our eye and pique our interest. I was fortunate to attend NeoCon this year again (I may be on number 19? I lost count). And, through the hustle and bustle of this visual feast, I was happy to see two brands I love come together as Berman Graphics: Print offering the Maharam Collection. A collection that translates Maharam's textile designs onto glass.
Amazing Brands-Berman Graphics Print Offering, the Maharam Collection
Part of the growing Berman Graphics: Print offering, the Maharam Collection made its debut and was front and center at NeoCon 2012. The Maharam Collection features four designs by the Maharam Design Studio-Anagram, Contrary, Disperse, and Fathom-with the potential to expand over time. Ranging from organic to geometric, this Berman Graphic collection accurately represents Maharam's clean, graphic approach to modern pattern design. The Maharam Collection can be printed and scaled to suit site-specific applications, in tempered, laminated, drilled, polished fabricated glass.
Using UV cured inks and a precision digital printing process, Joel Berman Glass Studios is able to accurately transfer Maharam's designs and colors onto large panels of glass that are scaled and produced on a custom project basis. This is a truly a partnership that explores color, design and sustainability. Printed on Joel Berman Glass Studios iconic glass product and using new digital printing techniques, the medium matches the message, and the technique encourages the use of these designs for building facades, back splashes, wall dividers and other applications. The print can be translucent or opaque for privacy. The beauty of the textile on glass becomes a medium that reflects, transmits, or diffuses light and is suitable for interior and exterior applications.
Not only is the glass and fabric happy together, but designers have the ability to coordinate Maharam's signature designs in glass applications allowing them to create spaces with a unified approach to color and pattern. Now, that's happiness.
