AGC’s Glass Signage ’infoverre™’ to Modernize Underground Spaces around Tokyo Station


AGC Asahi Glass (AGC), a world-leading manufacturer of glass, chemicals and high-tech materials, announces that AGC’s glass signage, infoverre™, has been adopted for use in the underground spaces of Tokyo Station. With its remarkably clear images, this signage will bring a new sense of style to Tokyo Station’s underground pedestrian areas.

infoverre™ is a glass signage product consisting of an LCD display that is directly laminated onto glass using special resin and lamination technology developed by AGC. Directly bonding the LCD to glass in this manner provides distinct advantages that include outstanding visibility and a design that appears to float in mid-air. Since there is no need for cooling fans or LCD support fixtures, this solution offers the additional benefit of a slim profile that does not obstruct traffic flow.

At present, 38 units of infoverre™ displays (65-inch) have been installed on 15 pillars between the Tokyo Metro Marunouchi Tokyo Station wicket and Shin-Marunouchi building. By installing infoverre™, Tokyo Station’s underground area, which only used replaceable posters displays previously, has been completely reborn as a stylish space.

Under its AGC plus management policy, the AGC Group has made a commitment to create products that add various pluses for stakeholders. Pluses for society include ’safety’, ’security’, and ’comfort’, while pluses for customers include ’new value’ and ’functionality’. Through continued application of its innovative glass signage, AGC is dedicated pursuing technological innovations that allow it to continue providing products that add new value and exceed customers’ expectations.


Installed location: 1-5-1 Marunouchi, Chiyoda-ku, Tokyo

About the infoverre™ series

infoverre™ was developed as one of the glass signage solutions that utilize glass as a medium to share information. The product comprises a large-scale LCD monitor that is laminated directly onto glass using optical bonding technology developed and refined by AGC’s chemicals division. By eliminating the air space between panel and glass, this technology enhances visibility and produces remarkably clear images on displays that appear to float in mid-air. Since the LCD display is supported by the glass surface it is bonded onto, it not only saves space but also realizes low power consumption by eliminating the need for cooling fans.

The infoverre™ series line-up is as follows.

It saves space and energy while giving the impression of a display floating in the air.
