  4. 4. SANS SOUCI TECHNIQUES1. Glass MosaicA pattern made up of numerous small pieces, this is a classic tiling format. Modern colour treat-ments, new designs and numerous applications have brought mosaics into contemporary 21stcentury interiors.2. Glass Mosaic in CombinationGlass mosaic in combination with structural glass and the use of interesting palettes of colourand texture, give an original impression, whether using large prominent patterns or subtler bor-dering and dividing components.3. Double Cut CoatingLarge ornamental glass surfaces lend themselves to combinations of colours in one pattern.Quality manufacture and sharp clean edges give an unlimited range of possibilities.4. Water-Jet CuttingA complex and relatively new technique, which is particularly suitable for modern, originallyshaped designs. A playfulness of colours in combination with various ornamental tile texturesalways creates an unexpected, unique result.5. SandblastingOur glass tiles achieve an incomparable depth and softness in their colours and shapes whensandblasted. Varying sandblasting layers allow us to create simple or complex textured patterns.6. Structural GlassVacuum coating allows ornamental and wire glass to achieve tiling material quality and makethem suitable for any interior. Their big advantage is the number of colours and their ability to be GLASS MOSAICused in combination with other materials and technologies.7. Bubble TilesThese tiles, created by firing numerous glass balls of varying sizes, are among the most exclu-sive tiling materials. Their plasticity and optical properties make them particularly suitableanywhere where touch is important.8. Arctic GlassLike a large sheet of ice, this is a safety glass with high decorative value. The light which refractsfrom the glass shards, fired at high pressure, enlivens every interior.

  47. 47. SANS SOUCI ALSO…Sans Souci develops its potential in three main lines.The first one is manufacturing of classic-style and modern-style lighting fixtures or lighting objecs asshown in catalogue, then also development and manufacturing of glass mosaics, unusual glass tilingmaterials and pieces of the mosaic art, and as third is GlassArt project based on co-operation withfamous Czech and foreign glass artists.Lighting fixturesThe desire of a human being to capture light is connected from ages to sun, daylight and positive think-ing. We want our lighting fixtures to initiate the same – not be only functional but compliment the interiorthrough its appearance and crown so the art of their creators. The light beams in different glazed com-ponents and magnanimity of the materials used are the symbol not only classical, richly decorated lightsbut the underlining simple lines of modern designs. GlassArt The absolutely unique project is GlassArt. The basic idea is the interconnection of artists and persons interested in this kind of art on the same platform. The virtual gallery’s aim is to make easier for artists to present their work all over the world and for the broad public to have presented there not only works of recognised artists from abroad but also the information concerning the glass history, methods of processing, biographies of presented artists, news from the world of glass and many more interesting issues. www.sanssouciint.com www.ssg-art.com
