"Harpa" Reykjavik: Dichroic glass in the facade designed by Olafur Eliasson

Colour effect glass for architecture

A design glass for exceptional architecture – a dichroic glass that is crystal clear one moment and, from a different perspective and angle of light entry, appears in full colour the next. At night, the colour depends on the position of the light source and of the observer.

Optical phenomena such as iridescent colour reflections on glass façades or coloured projections on indoor walls and floors that result in incidental light from the outside: Colour effect glass ensures a fascinating illuminating effect for the observer. And inspires architects to come up with surprising, creative solutions.

The expressive interplay of colour transmission and the reflection of a particular complementary colour resulting from the use of colour effect glass helps to make architecture more attractive and highly unique. Astonishing coloured light effects on dichroic glass surfaces strengthen the aesthetic values of façade and interior design.

Our assortment of colour glass comprises more than 20 standard colours. Additionally, we are able to create further colour effect variants according to your specifications and needs.

The colour effect of the dichroics depends on the lighting. In the light of day the result is a sensational superposition of the colours of the top and transparent views. At night, the colour perception depends on the position of the light source and of the observer. If both are located in front of the filter glass, the top view dominates, while if the viewer is on the one side and the light source on the other side of the filter, the transparency dominates.

Colour gradients are also possible. These are always composed of colours from the subtractive colour spectrum – for example, from orange and yellow to magenta, cyan and blue. The colour range of the gradients and their length can also be chosen.
