Red Dog Glass Design breathes fresh ideas into the world of surface design with the launch of Inhale, the latest design in a range of inspired glass panels focussing on the restorative power of the breath…
Based on the original artwork of company founder Sally Coulden, the Inhale range of glass panels is an observation on the expansiveness of the landscape, particularly from the summits of the brooding British hills. It’s the deep breath we take as we drink in a view for the first time, and the space created within our lungs as we draw nature in. Inhale is the sense of calm created as the inward breath restores and rebalances us.
“Framing infinity is a key theme throughout my work,” said Coulden from her Bristol-based studio where she paints. “I grew up in the wilds of Norfolk in a creative household, so noticing and documenting my environment has always been a part of my life. Using abstract strokes, I can communicate more than just how a place looks, I can also communicate how it feels to be in that place.”
“Red Dog Glass Design glass panels and splashbacks are perfect for the hospitality industry” said Nicola Arnold, Business Manager, Red Dog Glass Design. “Our pieces are highly practical, being easy to clean and exceptionally hard-wearing. But it’s not all about function, with a piece of Red Dog glass, interior designers have the opportunity to bring something unique to the table, something that adds more to the visitor experience. All of our designs tell a story, and all of our pieces are designed to create visual impact,” continued Arnold. “Whether that is in the rooms themselves, or public areas such a lobbies and restaurants, a piece of Red Dog glass will elevate any space into something extraordinary.”
The bold brushstrokes of Inhale focus on the power of the breath, the simple act of mindful breathing to regulate the parasympathetic nervous system. When we breathe deeply, we naturally self-soothe. And when we breath mindfully in nature the activation of the parasympathetic nervous system, combined with being outside, has immense benefits. And as individuals, we’re beginning to understand more about the importance of taking these moments of mindfulness post-pandemic. Research is now showing that how we breathe, combined with immersion in nature, can positively impact our immune system, our heart rate, and our stress levels.
Inhale is about design that allows for that immersion in nature to transfer onto surfaces that surround us. the designs are available in bespoke sizes based on the needs of the client and the space. A range of off-the-shelf sizes are available for bulk use throughout bathrooms and washrooms.
