“The winners of the Vanceva World of Color Awards will be determined by some of the most innovative architects and designers the industry has to offer,” says Kevin Moens, Global Architectural CommercialDirector for Advanced Interlayers. And because glass and color play a significant role in their professional work, they each will bring an invaluable perspective and expertise as they discuss and decide the winners of the competition.”
The Vanceva Color System offers architects and designers unparalleled creative freedom to incorporate color into glass and glazing systems using tinted interlayers, which are laminated in between two pieces of glass. A palette of 16 colors can be combined in up to four layers to produce more than 17,000 transparent, translucent and solid glass colors. This gives designers unmatched flexibility to create custom colors and one-of-a-kind aesthetics. Vanceva color interlayers also offer all the benefits of polyvinyl butyral (PVB) interlayers for laminated safety glass, including security, solar control, sound insulation and UV protection.
