The focal point of glass technology live 2016 is glass of the future. Presented will be, amongst others, innovations in the area of the application of glass in the building envelope, interactive glass, new glass products and the latest research topics.
The special show is structured into the thematically subdivided areas of shape, performance and integration. The various exhibits and mock-ups, according to their materiality, function and design, are then in turn assigned to these areas.
Intelligent glass with adaptive properties that can adjust to different light conditions (electrochromic glass), interactive glass as carrier medium of information and electronics (head-up displays and smart home functions) and glass with special properties (innovative coatings, self-luminous glass etc.) form a focal point of this year’s glass technology live.
