Sustainability has been and remains a cornerstone of day-to-day business practice at Skyline Design.
Skyline Design believes in local sourcing: for its line of back-painted Vitracolor glass, the low-VOC, water-based paint the company developed is manufactured within five miles of the Humboldt Park factory.
Skyline Design believes in environmentally-friendly materials: its proprietary Eco-etch® process does not use chemicals as an abrasive but instead recycled aluminum oxide, which is chemical-free, reusable, and results in a surface so resilient that it renders additional sealants unnecessary.
Efficiency & Economy
Skyline Design believes in efficiency and economy: glass is custom-cut for every order, rather than inventoried, to achieve the highest yields possible.
Skyline Design believes that every aspect of its practices can be evaluated and improved in light of their environmental impact—from custom-building its shipping crates in order to reduce packing material to replacing thousands of light bulbs in its factory and offices in order to reduce energy consumption.
Commitment to sustainability
This commitment to sustainability is reflected in Skyline Design’s fundamental building material: glass. Made from natural materials, glass itself has an unlimited life cycle—it will not deteriorate under normal conditions and it is recyclable at the end of its life. For those reasons, glass offers an environmentally superior platform for reengineering lived space.
