Glass really comes to life with light. It shines through the glass, filling the space with colour, atmosphere and heat. Or it provides fun reflections, continuously drawing our attention with the light plays. Again, and again, and again …
Light is the essence of stained glass
Only sunlight, that changes nearly every second, puts a stained glass window in its best light. Only then do we see the colours at their best and the composition tells its story. These are the changes which turn a stained glass window into a spectacle.
When there is no natural light (for example in case of the repurposing in a new building), artificial light is the only alternative. Until a few years ago, we only had the traditional clunky light box with fluorescent lamps. Luckily, things have changed since then!
When the sun shines through ...
Over the years, Atelier Mestdagh has acquired the necessary experience and now works with ultra thin LED light sheets. These innovative light sheets have many advantages:
- The light is distributed perfectly evenly, with no blind spots.
- The sheets are only 6 to 8 mm thick.
- LED lighting is very durable and ecological.
- The light sheets are flexible in terms of dimensions and shape (up to max 3 m x 1.5 m).
- The panels are dimmable, both manually and remotely.
Beauty is in the detail ...
If a stained glass window is not incorporated in a window, you need a frame to hang it in. We like to finish everything perfectly … So, we provide a fully customised steel or wooden frame. We suggest ideas and look for the best and nicest way to present your stained glass windows. So that you can optimally enjoy them.
