Focus on individuality: New designs for 1970s homes

Whether transparent, printed or reflective, new PLEXIGLAS® variants were a popular element in interior design in the 1970s, being used for transparent staircases, colorful lamps or for multi-colored wall cladding.

The adage of 1970s interior design was under no circumstances to have the same designs a neighbors and friends. Homes were meant to reflect the owner’s personality and break new ground in terms of interior design. Materials such as PLEXIGLAS® ensured that there were virtually no limits when it came to implementing the design ideas. The brand acrylic glass from Röhm GmbH was already available in numerous variants and colors and with different surfaces.
