The Story

LightPlay effortlessly achieves this, combining vibrant dichroic glass together with clean lines and artful simplicity. It has two components: dichroic glass panels installed vertically up the face of the building and a dichroic glass canopy covering the stairway to the subway station below. Goldray’s dichroic laminated glass was ideal for this installation, as it is exhibits a brilliant color shift based on the viewing angle, adding dimension and creating the feel of movement. Throughout the day, the sun’s rays create a stunning array of colors that are cast into the surrounding environment - across the building, onto the sidewalk, and even onto passersby.

“The orientation of the facade facing directly west makes it remain in full shadow until mid-day and then in full sun in the afternoon…working with light and shadow insures that the piece will be constantly changing, surprising and remain fresh,” explains Lajos Heder. At night, LightPlay takes on a new look, as solar powered LEDs reflect onto the dichroic glass, for a completely different lighting and color effect.
