AGC Asahi Glass to exhibit Dragontrail at Milan Design Week

AGC Asahi Glass, a world-leading manufacturer of glass, chemicals and high-tech materials, has announced that it will participate in Milan Design Week 2016.

Marking its second appearance at Milan Design Week this year, AGC will use Dragontrail and other types of thin, chemically strengthened glass for its unique installation to showcase a “light, flexible and expressive” glass world that will dramatically change the conventional image of glass.
Using Amorphous, indicating the molecular structure of glass, as the key concept, AGC’s glass installation will be created in partnership with NOSIGNER, a design firm that has a multi-disciplinary approach to design strategy, including graphic, product and space design.
AGC’s Dragontrail and other thin, chemically strengthened glass have been used mainly for the cover glass of smartphones, tablet PCs and other electronic devices. The chemical strengthening treatment applied during the production process makes the glass more resistant to scratching and breakage than ordinary glass. Taking advantage of this feature, AGC is developing a wide range of applications for this type of glass. Using such thin and strong glass at Milan Design Week, AGC’s “light, flexible and expressive” glass installation titled Amorphous will definitely change the conventional image of glass.
AGC is a world leader in architectural glass, automotive glass and display glass. At Milan Design Week, AGC’s glass installation using Dragontrail will stimulate the imagination and inspiration of designers in the fields of architecture, interior design, product design and spatial presentation.
