As with many innovations, Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec’s new collection for Skyline Design began with wandering. The French brothers went on a photo spree to document and distill the essence of chroma and light, capturing foamy seas, verdant forests, and players scrimmaging in vibrant jerseys. The designers then developed a software program to dissect the photos and manipulate the images, generating thousands of color iterations. Eight photos were filtered through the algorithm, ultimately generating two angular patterns for the Chicago-based architectural glass expert: Oblique, a crisscrossed sequence of vertical and diagonal lines, and Chevron, a faceted grid. Contrasting tones outline the colors, creating an effect that simulates stained glass. Available in mono- and polychromatic palettes, the designs are digitally printed on either low-iron tempered safety glass or laminated glass, in custom dimensions up to 72 by 144 inches.
