Goblets Are Your New Kitchen Must-Have

In February of 2018, we were Google-searching glassware for another story when we stumbled upon a series of objects from the '50s that awoke in us an obsession for thick-stemmed wine glasses that we never knew we had: Kaj Franck's series of colorful goblets. Two years later, our obsession has only grown, and we think they're the thing to have on your table now.

The Artist Reimagining Fake Fruit for the Modern Era

Eye candy is called eye candy for a reason — but the Auckland, New Zealand–based Devon Made’s range of uncannily lifelike glass fruit creations take the phrase to a new level. (Is it just us who kind of want to put them in our mouths?) Edible impulses aside, artist Devyn Ormsby's perfectly translucent banana, pear, mandarin, and lemon likenesses in cobalt, lime, citrine, pink, and clear, have caught our eye (and stormed our Instagram).

This Canadian Designer — Known for His Woodwork — Is Making the Most Epic Glass

When we posted our New York Design Week round-ups earlier this spring, there was one project we held for later because it was just. that. gorgeous. Amidst a sea of walnut, bronze, maple, and steel at Vancouver-based designer Jeff Martin's booth, we spied these craggy, colorful glass vessels, glinting under the lights of the Javits. Turns out, when we reached out to Martin for more information, that the process by which they're made — from the remnants of past projects — is as interesting as the way they look.

For New York Design Week, We Curated a Collection in the Material of the Moment

From epic collections by Glas Italia to the rise of vintage Murano to the swell of young glass blowers creating their own pieces and collaborating with other designers, glass has been enjoying a major resurgence as of late, and the work being done with it continues to excite us. That’s why, when we began planning a New York design week project with the influential fashion boutique 4510/Six, creating our own glass collection was the obvious choice.

Trueing’s Epic New Lights Hang From Huge Colored Glass Chains

There was a time when we would have associated the idea of chains in lighting with Restoration Hardware, or a Medieval tavern. That time has officially come to an end. Not only are chains on something of an upswing in design right now, but the rising New York studio Trueing just released an epic series of sconces, pendants, and floor lamps suspended from oversized links made of borosilicate glass, instantly banishing all rustic or industrial associations from our minds.

Experiments in Colored Glass, Inspired by the Palette of Mexico

As avowed colored glass evangelists, we practically consider it our saintly duty to bring your attention to one of the coolest, most beautiful glass objects we've seen in years: As part of a residency program supported by the Swiss Design Mexico program and the Swiss Embassy in Mexico, Swiss designer Julie Richoz spent the last year developing these two-toned Isla vases in collaboration with the glass-blowing masters at Nouvel Studio.
