Opal and Opaque Glass
Opal and Opaque Glasses are semi-transparent and/or non-transparent and transform the crossing light into a damped, diffuse flare. Special glass composants added to the mixture of the glass provoke the opacity. Worked in the flashed glass technique this milky glass in the shape of a thin layer on clear or coloured basic glass is available in panel sizes of about 60x90cm. Whether unicoloured, multi-coloured or marbled Opal and Opaque Glasses are suited to art works in windows and doors with inhibited view as well as backlighted wall installations.

For the new construction of a laboratory building for Karolinska Institutet Akademiska Hus instructed us to manufacture a customized glass. For the “Glass-Light-Wall” which should not look architectonic and beautiful only but be functional as well we produced a complex double-flashed glass with marbled shading. To complete the four facades 1.914 sheets of LambertsGlas® have been processed to a laminated glass in the size of 550x880mm each to be installed in a very clever assembly and lighting fixture.
