Prismatic Color: Surfaces Trend

New printing and fabrication technology allows a range of surfaces to take on all the colors of the rainbow at once—see how designers are combining lighting effects and surface patterns to achieve designs that change with every angle:

3form-dichroic-surfaces

Varia Ecoresin Lunar Dichroic by 3form: A special Varia inner layer that appears to change color as the viewer moves past it, the surface takes on a new appearance when backlit, as in the custom-fabricated, 9-foot ring above. www.3-form.com

Fasara-3M-Prismatic

Fasara Glass Finishes by 3M: The material company’s Fasara finishes are a low-cost option for enhancing design and privacy on glass surfaces, providing the look and translucency of etched, sandblasted or custom decorative glass. The Prism-Dot family contains patterns that contain prisms or dots in sliver, black, opaque, or white. www.solutions.3m.com

gemmy-prisma-slamp

Gemmy Prisma Color by Slamp: Inspired by gemstones, the lamp reflects a rainbow of jewel-toned colors. Made with Lentiflex, which uses a special surface-printing technology and the effect of the double Fresnel lens, the lamp is available in five colors: Emerald, Amber, Amethyst, Gold, or Rubin. www.slamp.it

m_3e9edb0b

Paravento by Cappellini: A sculpture and room divider in one, Paravento is built with dichroic glass segments that refract light, increasing the effect of ambient lighting and casting patterns of light and color on surrounding walls. www.cappellini.it

Plexiglas Radiant by Evonik Röhm: Acrylic sheets coated on one side produce a color field that changes with the viewing angle. As with other Plexiglas products, Radiant can be milled, drilled, polished, and thermoformed into a wide range of shapes. www.plexiglas-shop.com
