The Synergy of Glass and Light

The Synergy of Glass and Light

Glass and lighting have been a complimentary pair for centuries. The purity of glass allows it to handle light in a functional yet visually stunning way. Today, these combined attributes are creating new design possibilities through a glass optical fiber optimized for thin, colorful, aesthetic lighting.

The fiber’s thinness allows it to be embedded or designed into places where other bulky or plastic lighting elements cannot fit. Its flexibility enables it to bend or curve around objects while maintaining continuous, uniform illumination. Lastly, the optical purity of the glass allows the fiber to emit vibrant, clear colors.

These qualities optimize the fiber’s lighting for aesthetic appeal in architectural settings such as pools, spas, or elegant restaurants. Also, the fiber could easily be stitched into seams, wrapped around columns, and embedded into narrow grooves of almost any other material.

These attributes of glass are bringing possibilities to light for the automotive, architectural, consumer electronics, or appliance markets.
