In the mid ’60s Vitrealspecchi patented the first process for etching float glass on an industrial scale. That was the beginning of Madras®. This collection turns factory-supplied float glass-monolithic, laminated, silvered or painted-into an exquisite aesthetic and functional solution for the built environment. The Madras® patterns are organized by type of finish, intended use and stylistic features, so designers can choose based on look, functionality or installation requirements. Madras® chemical etching is permanent and does not alter the glass’s resistance characteristics, while the various surface treatments to choose from-velvet, textured, sparkling effects, etc.- enhance the product’s tactile and visual properties. Daily care is simple: a damp cloth (preferably microfiber), water and/or any common glass detergent works. Madras® is manufactured in compliance with all Italian environmental standards.
