pigmented structural glass

Isaac Kremer/ September 9, 2018/ / 0 comments

The dramatic growth and popularization of the early 20th century Art Deco and Moderne architectural styles were fueled, in part, by technological advances in the building materials industry. New products, such as stainless steel and plastics, enlarged the realm of architectural design. The more traditional materials, on the other hand, quickly developed fresh, innovative forms and uses. For example, the architectural glass industry became especially creative, introducing a series of new glass products known as structural glass. Used predominately for wall surfacing, these now familiar products included glass building blocks, reinforced plate glass, and pigmented structural glass. Examples of pigmented structural glass are: Carrara Glass, Sani Onyx (or Rox), and Vitrolite. (Buffalo, 2017)
