Quote: Oscar Wilde

“He had that curious love of green, which in individuals is always the sign of a subtle artistic temperament, and in nations is said to denote a laxity, if not a decadence of morals.”

~ Oscar Wilde
Irish Playwright, Novelist, Poet, Short Story Writer and Freemason, 1854–1900

~ Henri Matisse

Quote: Alissa Schmidt

“The nice thing about colored interlayers is that they offer the colorful aesthetics combined with the performance benefits of laminated glass, including safety, security, solar and sound protection. They can even be used in combination with high-performance coatings and silk-screening to maximize performance and aesthetics.”

~ Alissa Schmidt


“Color is all.   When color is right, form is right. Color is everything, color is vibration like music; everything is vibration.”

~ Marc Chagall

What is the prime capability of color?

“The prime capability of color in architecture is that it is the most potent  of all vehicles for emphasis.  Color possesses an inherent property recognized in its scientific aspect as its radiant energy.”
