‘column’ is a nod to the tradition of glassblowing and underlines the potential of that skill through an innovative manufacturing process. Centred around the relevance of crafts in an industrialised society, it embraces the quality of forming one-of-a-kind objects. The project comprises a collection of seemingly individual, yet related items made out of glass. ‘column’ is designed to be produced as an edition, defined not by numbers, but by the skills and specific quality inherent to the craftsmanship of the respective glassmaker. Flexible steel moulds provide a new tool for the glassblower to use his knowledge and expertise to form unique pieces.
