AGC, one of the world’s leading glass manufacturers and a specialist in glass used in interiors, is well aware of how colour and light influence the perception of architectural designs.

By offering a new array of unique, highly reflective colours, AGC is confident that its range of Lacobel painted glass will consolidate its status as a great favourite with designers.

Lacobel – wonderful, colourful glass

Following a detailed study of the latest trends in the world of colour, AGC Flat Glass is bringing its range into line with current tastes by offering no fewer than 25 handpicked colours, including 7 highly avant-garde ones: four metallic colours (Metal Taupe, Rich Gold, Rich Copper and Rich Aluminium), two pure colours (Starlight black, Pearl White), and one particularly fun colour (Jungle Green).

Lacobel – colour your reflection in a wide range of applications

In addition to colour and the sense of depth characteristically conveyed by glass, AGC’s new range offers designers some unique reflective possibilities. To prove it, its new campaign entitled “Colour your reflection” features interiors where colours literally shine, whether used as wall panels in living rooms, kitchens and bathrooms, as sliding doors or table tops or in a host of other applications.

Lacobel – it’s as simple as that!

Lacobel glass is easy to clean and offers a lasting aesthetically attractive solution. Protected by the glass, the layer of colour remains both scratch- and stain-resistant. Lacobel painted glass is available with a polypropylene film dubbed Safe that protects people more effectively when the glass is broken while at the same time keeping the painted layer clear away from humidity in bathrooms and kitchens.
