|DICHROLAM™ Color Changing Architectural Glass|
Picture in your mind a polished gemstone of Opal. Now picture it the size of a conference table.
Dichrolam™ is the first glazing and surfacing material in seamless architectural sized glass and acrylic panels (up to 54" x 144") that have dichroic, ("di"=two, "chroic"=color) thin film technology built right into the material that actually changes color in full spectrum color shifts according to viewing angle.
If you are familiar with common dichroic glass (limited size, EXPENSIVE color-changing art glass often found in jewelry), then Dichrolam is optically identical, yet without the price, size and fabrication limitations. Dichrolam also has higher color saturation and wider color spectrum shift than other metal deposition dichroic glass products.

|Below is rotating gallery of eye-candy photos as quick examples from favorite installs to custom sculpture (like this new wall), splashing with inter-reflecting colors that are only possible through the fabrication techniques developed by John Blazy - Dichrolam's inventor and former furniture designer.
As a truly original new medium for architectural glazing, lighting, opaque wall and work surfacing to sculpture and art, these products were invented by a designer, for designers. This website is photo-intensive, as the only way to convey the color dynamics and application possibilities is to devote much space to this - so look thoroughly and often, as it is updated constantly.
