Colour effect glass

Our dichroic (from the Greek “dichroos”, meaning two-tone) colour effect glass inspires architects, designers and artists to come up with creative designs.

Dichroic glass is unique

The transparent, ultra-thin coated glass creates colour without using absorbing pigments. It allows light to pass through almost without restriction and yet, depending on the angle of radiation and the viewing angle, can shine in brilliant colours.

We offer glass in a wide range of colour variations.

The various coatings can be applied to safety glass as well as curved or spherical glass surfaces.

Success Story

The cooperation between the young artist Inga Danysz, born in Warsaw in 1990, and Prinz Optics in creating the walk-through sculpture of colour effect glass “Color Fields” is paradigmatic for the company’s service and support centre.  The project was an extremely complex task: for her sculpture at the new “Johanna-Quandt-Zentrum” at Frankfurt’s university hospital, the artist wanted large, curved glass panes from our transparent and yet at the same time colourful, reflective dichroic glass.
