Metropolis, imaginative skyline in Madras® Glass.
Download pdf
Fuori Salone 2016 / CONNESSIONI-CONNECTIONS by arch. Silvio De Ponte
Madras glass is the star in Metropolis, an installation created by architect Silvio De Ponte for Vitrealspecchi within the framework of Connessioni/Connections: forms, transparencies, reflections and tricks of perspective simulate the skyline of an imaginative crystalline city.
The installation develops across three islands, three stylistically different worlds whose individual components interact and aggregate: the island of geometries, where lines on both sides and tiny pinpoints light up in the matter-non-matter of glass; the island of patterns and décor, which glass translates into tactile and visual sensations; and lastly the evocative and illusionistic island-cloud dedicated to the latest effects added to the creative portfolio of Madras® glass.
Madras® glass is manufactured by Vitrealspecchi, the Italian company with the longest experience in the chemical processing of flat glass on a industrial level.
Fifty of its over seventy years in business have in fact been devoted to developing the potential of this processing technique, which finds application – with the products in the Madras® Architecture and Design range – in sectors such as furnishings and interior design, doors and windows and construction.

Porte de Versailles, Paris
Equip’Hotel is an international trade fair that attracts leading operators in the hospitality and catering industries, architects, interior designers, chefs, etc. At this event the Milan- based Caberlon Caroppi presented its Room Under The Moon concept, a travelling “eco-resort” project with social and cultural, ecological and above all self-sustainable content. The Milan firm chose Vitrealspecchi – together with the other partners on the project – because of its high opinion of Madras® glass as a material of choice for hotels. And Madras® made a decisive contribution to the development of the project’s design guidelines, with two new models that are innovative in terms of both design and production: Madras® Nuvola, the latest progressive satin finish glass, a unique product, and Madras® Fili Maté double face, with natural and green motifs.
