Glass Is Tomorrow in Paris, France by Pro Materia

Thursday, January 17th, 2013

Article source: Pro Materia

GLASS IS TOMORROW is a European project, which aims at establishing a more fluid exchange of knowledge and competencies between glass and design professionals in the north, south, east and west of Europe. Supported by the ‘Culture’ (2007-2013) program of the European Union, GLASS IS TOMORROW promotes a high level of craft and design in contemporary glass. The project was launched on June 1st 2011, and three workshops were organized, in Nuutajärvi (FI), Nový Bor (CZ), Meisenthal (FR), during which glassblowers and designers teamed up to produce glass pieces. Glass aesthetics and techniques were explored by the tandems in order to  develop new typologies of everyday objects. The project opened up new potentialities and generated dialogue about the conception, production and distribution of glass pieces by experimenting around three themes: Stackability, Silver Glass and Out of the Mould.The prototypes created during the workshops as well as the GLASS IS TOMORROW project are now presented to the public through a touring exhibition and publication, featuring pictures and videos signed by James Bort and photography by Anne Croquet and Guy Rebmeister.
