Infinity glass panels – October 2016
Iris has captured her fascination for colour, reflection and the infinity of light in patterns between glass. Translated into a series of interior glass panels with lighting and mirroring.
The glass pieces can be combined in many ways, which result in unique colour blends and light effects on its surrounding. Together with sun and artificial light, the pieces will constantly change during day and night.

‘Bubble’ Unique glass skylight design, for Politie the Hague
Together with the renovation of the police station Bureau Hoefkade, a large piece of glass design is installed in the conference room. A fenomenal work, measuring 7 by 4,5 metres creates a different effect troughout the day. The design, made by Iris van Daalen and the production process are especially developed for this project.
Iris van Daalen got commissioned by M2uur to create a design for a semi-transperent ceiling panel made from glass. Van Daalen graduated with ‘Illusional Foils’ at the Design Academy Eindhoven in 2010. For this she dirived inspiration from structures, lines and colours out of the nano-nature. By layering the design, an effect of spatial illusion is created.
Van Daalen: ‘This design is composed out of abstracted bubbles, ranked as an organisation chart. Everyone is in connection with each other, resulting into a web of influences. The fragile structure of the artwork ‘Bubble’ symbolizes order, structure as well as authority and the transience of this. I liked to change the pure functional space into a space were you can amaze and desire. A place where you may dream, relax and come to comprehension.’
