See-Through Glass House Designed by Carlo Santambrogio & Ennio Arosio

I’m excited to show an ingenious glass house designed by Italian architect Carlo Santambrogio and designer Ennio Arosiso that is a concept house with transparent stairways, walls, and ceilings.  They built the glass house to showcase their line of transparent furniture called Simplicity including a bed, sofa, bookcases, tables, and bathtub to list a few.

There are no visible walls or doors to interrupt your view in the glass house.  I like my privacy way too much to live in a glass house, how about you?

But, even if a house with walls and doors had a glass bathtub in it, I would not want to use it.  I am too stuck in my ways to be adventurous and consider using all glass bookcases, tables, or tubs.  All that comes to mind is the glass breaking and the obvious amount of Windex-like products to keep it clean.  But, I do understand the idea of see-through furniture taking up no visual space, no interruption of lines or bulk.  Small spaces would seem larger.

  1. It’s pure eye candy. I think you have not only Holiday cards, but any kind of card and I do think it is a great collection along with great dolls of course.

  2. Sue, such amazing views of the exterior landscape from any spot you elect to sit in this home. But would you need to wear sun block on days you stay indoors? Lovely to look at but not a spot I would choose to live.

    Thanks for stopping over and leaving the sweet comment about my St. Patrick’s Day vintage postcards. I do have quite a few holiday postcards … but they don’t take up a lot of space. You can store a significant number in an empty shoebox!

  5. I would love to tour this house. Living in a glass house though? No way. I mean, unless I somehow had my own private island… but even then the smudges on the walls would probably drive me insane in two seconds.
