The dichroic glass, produced by Prinz Optics in Germany, is made by coating the panes in ultra-thin layers of different metals and oxides to affect how it reflects and refracts light.
This coating changes the colour of the glass depending on the angle it is viewed from, giving the surfaces a colour gradient and creating shadows in unexpected hues
Although it was invented in the Roman era, the material has recently seen a resurgence among designers such as Patricia Urquiola, who used iridescent glass to create a furniture series for Glas Italia last year.
Coloured glass is also emerging as one of the trends at Milan design week this year. Urquiola is showing a new cabinet featuring stained-glass doors and the Campana brothers have designed a cabinet with blob-shaped holes filled with coloured glass.
"I am particularly interested in creating timeless design by using simple geometry and basic materials. The dialogue between the two is expressed in Spectra," said Kukka Studio founder Rona Meyuchas-Koblenz.
The studio will be presenting the ABCD table and the O table from the collection as part of design magazine Frame's What's the Matter? Design for a Phygital World exhibition. The show is taking place at the La Posteria venue in Milan's Brera district during the city's design week, from 12 to 17 April 2016.
Also on show during the event are a variety of different products designed for children and a collection of zigzag-patterned wooden furniture.
