GLASS IS TOMORROW is a European network, which was launched on 1st June 2011, with the support of the “Culture” programme (2007-2013) of the European Union. Te project aims at establishing a more fluid exchange of knowledge and competencies between glass and design professionals from all over Europe. Tree workshops were organized, in Nuutajärvi (FI), Novy Bor (CZ) and Meisenthal (FR), during which glass blowers and designers had the opportunity to meet, exchange, explore the constraints, possibilities and æsthetics of contemporary glass, as well as to learn from new production techniques. Centered around three themes, Stackability, Silver Glass and Out of the Mould, they challenged to re-invent typologies of everyday objects. This touring exhibition will now unveil the prototypes of the glass pieces that were created during the workshops, by highlighting as well the project GLASS IS TOMORROW through photographs, videos and a fully illustrated publication.
