Type of Glass
The bold image captured by the Hubble Telescope was printed onto glass using Goldray's digital ceramic printing process - a technology that applies ink directly onto the glass which is then permanently fused to the surface during the tempering process. This versatile product can be applied to glass for a cost-effective, low maintenance solution to many design needs.
Due to the unique nature of the project, the Goldray design team had to think outside of the box and it took some trial and error to ensure that we expressed the magic of astronomy in the best way possible. Knowing that any traditional printing processes would not be enough to allow the vibrant colors of the installation to shine through, our head designer developed a multiple layer solution that captured the architect's design intent. This process created an incredibly animated façade that seamlessly changes from day to night, allowing the stars within the galaxy to stand out.
