Description

A material made from molten waste glass, Tasman Glass simulates an aesthetic known from nature. Inspired by the landscape in which the designer grew up, the material with its water- and ice-mimicking surface is an ode to the rich textures of New Zealand’s Tasman Glacier.

A five-day melting process and a highly accurate firing curve create a translucent and opaque look with highly textured haptics, which reveal unknown aesthetics of this otherwise so familiar material. The non-standardised nature of the waste allows each surface to become one of a kind. Depending on the country where the raw resources stem from, the recycled material varies in shade, colour, and texture.

The material’s properties, such as structure and light transmittance, allow for diverse applications as surfaces and display in retail, interior, and products. Teaming up with a local recycling centre, the Tasman Glass is exclusively handmade in Germany.

About the designer

Curated by

As Belgium is a small country without a very distinctive, nationalistic pride, artists and designers can work in complete freedom. There’s no higher purpose to be served. Creations can be the most individual expression of the most individual emotion. Thanks to this liberal creative climate – in combination with a strong, historical artistic tradition and qualitative art schools – Belgian art, design, and its collectors have gained international recognition for their avant-gardism. Besides, Belgium has always been a melting pot of different cultures, combining both German and Roman influences. This historical context gives designers the opportunity to colour outside the lines and outspokenly explore the borders between art, design, crafts, and industry. Strict typologies are left behind; rather, banal materials are transformed for a high-end context and meaningful stories are transmitted as an extra emotional layer. In doing so, these emancipated creations break out of traditional frames of reference, open up to everyone, and stand with both feet in our multicultural and multi-layered contemporary society.
