The colour effect glass by PRINZ OPTICS GmbH is dichroic (from the Greek ‘dichroos’ = bicolour) special glass. Only a determinable range of the spectrum can permeate clear glass with an extremely thin mineral coating, thus generating brilliant light colouration - depending on the incidence angle of light rays and the perspective of the viewer.


The expressive interplay of colour transmission and the reflection of a particular complementary colour resulting from the use of colour effect glass makes glass façades and glass roofs, for example, more attractive and highly unique.


This dichroic glass uses light to generate chromaticity. On the one hand, the glass has a neutral colour which allows light to be transmitted almost without any restriction at all. On the other hand, it’s seen ‘in colour’, because the thinly applied interference coatings make each glass pane only permeable by a specific wavelength spectrum of light. The remaining part of the colour spectrum is reflected, thus becoming visible. The colour effect of these glass panes varies according to direct sunlight and/or the location of an artificial light source and also depends on the angle of vision and background.


When they fall through the six thousand circular panes of glass of VarioTrans®-Colour Effect Glass (which have been embedded into the coffers of the ceiling and pillars), they conjure up coloured patterns into the hall: circular projections in various sizes. Six vivid colours - three shades of blue, two of green and a vibrant yellow – are reminiscent of peacock feathers, India’s national bird and at the same time the emblem of Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport.
