Yakisugi by Kengo Kuma
The renowned Japanese architect drew his inspiration from a technique for preserving construction timber by charring its surface, known in Japan as Shou-Sugi-Ban or Yakisugi.
This ancient technique uses charring wood as a means to preserve it without the need of painting or sealing, an aspect leading to the current revival of this technique in eco-friendly architecture.
Adapting this process to the centuries-old glass craft technique enabled a contemporary design that is unique for every single piece of hand-blown glass.
Born Broken by Jakub Berdych
Inspired by the craft itself, these vases remind us of the otherwise unseen aspects of glass production – its production errors. each hand-blown shape is broken into several segments and their edges additionally hammered to create a pattern visually similar to cutting.
The individual pieces are reheated and joined into one unit, creating a safe and compact surface, but retaining their intriguing random patterns.
Otto by Yabu Pushelberg
The design for the otto glassware collection was approached with a balance of refined detailing, applied to both the rustic qualities and the precise craftsmanship of each piece. Alternating radial and tangential cut lines provide dramatic texture to careful line work and the well-defined silhouettes of the otto collection.
Candy Vase by Campana Brothers
The Candy tableware now complements existing lighting sculptures, and the Candy collection builds on the colourful universe explored and expressed through glass.
The collection is inspired by colourful candies, and the brightness of the glass combined with the palette of colours and the visual aspect of the colourful lines make you imagine the piece as a delicious candy. Lollipop!
