The unique characteristics of an amorphous azo-polymer and its response to light stimuli enable the building of optical architectures with great complexity. A four-beam holographic approach is adopted and 2D polarization patterns allow the formation of spiral- and ribbon-like chiral structures. The results suggest an alternative way to design supramolecular chiral materials that are characterized by high stability and complete reconfigurability.
