Colour effect glass for art and percent for art

Colour effect glass is an inspiring basic material for sculptural glass art due to its fascinating ability to generate bright colours from pure light. Thanks to its resistance to weathering, it is particularly suitable for ‘percent for art’ projects.

The dichroic ‘miracle glass’ gets its iridescent colours – comparable to a diamond – simply from light. This results in colours and colour gradients that change with the position of the light source and of the observer. Where architectural design is to be supported by appropriate colour spectra, dichroic glass meets not only all aesthetic and quality requirements, but also all safety and performance standards.

Thanks to our range of more than 20 different colour effects, we cover the entire visible spectrum. If so desired, we can create and develop further colour variations and design effects – for example, different colour gradients. We will be happy to provide you with appropriate glass samples for your art project.

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