Glass Cares presents the experiments of ten Portuguese designers with the country’s traditional mouth blowing glass technique.
This initiative of the project Off Portugal will be launched during this year's Milan design week at Ventura Lambrate.
The exhibition showcases ten glass pieces developed during a two day workshop residency in Marinha Grande, a region known for its glass blowing tradition. The event brought together the process, curiosity, and desire to experiment of the young designers with the artistry and established know-how of the local craftsmen.
Glass Cares was developed by a network of people interested in the field, representing a new wave of glass design. It is a joint initiative of Arquivo 237, Vicara, and Cencal. Future Off Portugal initiatives will explore a different material with the same principle: the fruitful encounter of young designers with a local industry that could benefit from a fresh approach.
Our goal is to bring young independent Portuguese designers to the main stages of the design world. The project showcases the country’s most promising talents by initiating collaborations with local industries in order to reinvent traditional manufacturing techniques. The first beyond borders initiative presents experimental glass works in the exhibition Glass Cares at Ventura Lambrate
