Playful interaction and dynamic privacy
Dialogue takes on a personality of its own as layers of glass interact with one another, with light, and with movement. Each of the line's six ceramic frit patterns change form and move as light or a person's vantage point changes. Patterns come to life, shapes are revealed, and shadows dance as light and movement engage in a dialogue with the glass. Dialogue layered glass creates dynamic privacy that changes, just as the doorglass patterns do, with light and proximity.

Subtle beauty and a surprising twist
Dialogue complements a range of architectural styles and design aesthetics with doorglass patterns offering privacy and translucence. Ayako Takase and Cutter Hutton, principals of industrial design firm Observatory, created each of Dialogue's designs with an etched, subtle pattern on the outer glass layer that allows the home's architecture to take center stage while the interior layer features a bolder, pronounced pattern.

Banter

Banter’s small-scale pattern of overlapping diagonal lines creates a woven design that zig-zags across layers of doorglass. From a distance, the fine "threads" give the appearance of fully frosted, textured glass that provide a low-to-medium privacy range.

Brainstorm

Appealing to both mid-modern and modern design sensibilities, Brainstorm's exterior vertical pattern and interior chevron motif combine for an appearance with both subtlety and substance. Brainstorm layered glass has a medium to medium-high privacy range.

Chatter

A repetitive pattern of dots and lines creates a doorglass design that reads as a texture. Chatter's shadow effect adds playful movement to a doorglass design with a medium-high privacy range.

Converse

What at first appears to be cut glass is a stencil design that hints of keyhole arches common in Moroccan architecture. The relationship between Converse's clear and frosted glass layers creates striking shadows and a high privacy range.

Repartee

Repartee's frosted layers and geometric grid combine for a design that plays with opacity and movement. Squares and trapezoids carry on a lively back-and-forth as light and vantage points change their appearance. Repartee layered glass offers a high privacy range.
