Do you use the word “Glyph” very often? I do not. In fact, I did not know it was a word until this past job.
So here is the definition: Glyph
an hieroglyphic character or symbol; a pictograph
Ok great, so why not put a glyph on a wall? And I am not talking about having some urchins from downtown roar over to your house with a spray can.
We were looking for some modern artistic statements for one of our projects and found this surface termed ‘Glyph’; the client fell in love with it immediately. The wall is located in a family room in the basement of this home. The idea is, as you descend the helix staircase and enter into the basement you directly see a remarkable, softy-highlighted wall which draws you into the family room. It is stunning and worked out wonderfully!
As for the Glyph product… it is manufactured by Modular Arts. We have used several of these panels over the years and have found them exciting to work with and of extremely high quality.
