GLASSY: A Selection Of Glass Divides

Scroll To View



Back in June of this year DPAGES put together a post on “kitchens behind glass“. Today we are following up with a bit of a spin off  as we continue to celebrate the unique beauty and versatility of this liquid solid as it at once defines and open up our interior spaces. Enjoy!



This tiny kitchen, complete with sliding glass doors, is set in a Milan home designed by Paolo Frello & Partners. The doors serve to contain the kitchen’s heat, noise and aromas, all while maintaining a visual flow and connection with the main living and dining area. Photos by Valentino Bellini.

Classic glass paned doors offer the option to close off the library from the main living area in this traditional style home.



The fully glass encased Ex-libris bookcase designed by Piero Lissoni is available in unit sizes from 4 feet to 15.8 feet long – rendering it an interesting alternative to a more permanent glass partition.

An ultra minimal black framed door serves to divide bedroom from en suite bath while preserving the light and views available through the bath’s far window. An ample curtain serves to shield the more utilitarian features of the bath while providing the option of additional privacy. Designed by the Tel-Aviv based firm Pitsou Kedem Architect.

And because we love it so much… a view from Van Duysen’s living room. Photo by Manolo Yllera.



Set within a tiny village in Provençe France, lies the former home of modernist architect Roger Anger (1923-2008). Nestled seamlessly within what was once a 12th century monastery, this unique dining room is ceremonially set off by two glass doors. Photo via Architectural Digest – Russia.

Calderone cites the installation of the custom wood and beveled glass partition as the feature that most elevated the apartment’s aesthetic. Not only does it look like it has been there forever, but it adds so much personality and, of course, that very cozy nook. Photo courtesy of Rawlins Calderone.
