The Grid Shower design finds its roots in the metal ‘mullioned’ grid showers that are in demand in the marketplace today. Noticing that grid showers made of traditional metal and glass were challenging to clean, the SWOON design team utilized Dip-Tech printing to build a shower enclosure that looks exactly like the oil rubbed bronze grids.

The SWOON design team took care to “texturize” the metal mullion graphic, simulating real oil rubbed bronze. We then went to work on the interior shower walls, using Carrera marble and golden marble tones in a herringbone pattern. Care was taken to ‘randomize’ the digital images so that the marble looked organic, no two tiles being alike, by grabbing different areas of the stone patterns. The addition of light grey “grout lines” and the choice to print the exposed surface on ‘side A’ create the matte, realistic look of honed marble tile.

The result? A five-panel project that showcases the beauty of Dip-Tech printing, all the while celebrating the ease of cleaning glass in high-end showers. Goodbye to metal grids and tile grout lines that are tricky to clean. The new age of the luxury bathroom has arrived.

 

The word of inspiration from SWOON

 

With the addition of the SWOON division of WOON-TECH, the company looked to brand the message of Dip-Tech technology to High-End Architects, Interior Designers & Bath/Kitchen Showcases throughout the USA. Focusing on the New England Market, we aligned ourselves with the prestigious publication BOSTON DESIGN GUIDE for their annual sourcebook. The ‘Telephone Booth’  shower design was the answer to an in-demand shower style in the marketplace that could be produced in a smarter way using Dip-Tech printing. The response to the shower in the publication has been exceptional, as  WOON-TECH and SWOON become well known for creative,  cutting-edge alternatives to traditional glass projects. Dip-Tech has been instrumental in providing education to our Sales Representatives on the merits of the technology,  which in return educates the Architects, Interior Designers, and Artists that we sought to target. SWOON and Dip-Tech are indeed game-changers for our company. Our outrageous attention to detail in Glass Fabrication has been known for decades, but now we are carving out a niche market in Custom Glass Design and opening all new doors for WOON-TECH.
