“Interference”, “Fragments” and “Escapism” at NeoCon
GGI launches new collection of patterned glass – Invites designers to help select the line
Secaucus, NJ, June 2, 2014: Working with textile designer Jeremy Noonan, GGI announces a new collection of contemporary patterns available digitally printed on glass. Noonan produced 16 patterns in three groupings inspired by the book “Alone Together,” by Sherry Turkle. “Interference” references Japanese resist dyeing techniques, “Fragments” uses composited surfaces like mosaic and quilting for inspiration, and “Escapism” plays with depth of field, movement and shifts to create visual stimulation. GGI is asking for help from architects and designers who are attending NeoCon to choose the 9 patterns that will go into final production. Simply stop by booth 8-4082 and pick your favorites.
This is just the latest in several direct-to-glass, digitally printed collections Noonan has designed for GGI.
“The Alice direct-to-glass digital printing process gives designers new freedom to see their creativity come to life on glass,” Noonan notes. “Because I can control opacity and line weight, I have confidence the delicacy and subtlety of my patterns will be beautifully rendered.”
“Jeremy brings his extensive experience in textile design and a sophisticated eye for pattern to these designs,” says GGI CEO, David Balik. “His work has helped us create a library of beautiful textures that are ready for architects and interior designers to use as is, or customize by adjusting scale, opacity and color.”
Noonan holds an MFA in Fiber from Cranbrook Academy of Art and has designed for Target, Abescon Mills, Crypton, Milliken, and others. He credits the philosophies rooted in Arts and Crafts, Modernism, and Folk Art for inspiration.
NeoCon, held June 9 – 11 at Chicago’s Merchandise Mart, is North America’s largest design exposition and conference for commercial interiors.
