In the manufacture of lighting glass, one third of each handblown piece is discarded. This valuable material resource (glass shards) is typically seen as waste.
Made from shards of glass discarded during the manufacture process, these decorative panels bring a significant reduction in waste material. The transformation of these shards into a new decorative product represents an environmentally friendly and efficient upcycling of material, thanks to which the glassworks is able to employ a strategic circular economy and thus contribute to the creation of a healthy relationship between nature and humans.
The development of this recycled blown glass was driven by a need to change the perception of these glass shards as waste, which previously was hauled to a landfill and thus burdened the planet and had a negative impact on the environmental landscape.
Waste shards are sorted by colour and stored. The material is the produced by fusing shards of glass in a stationary furnace.
Production has been optimized to process up to ten tons of waste material per week in double-shift operation.
This glass can be used for lighting fixtures, feature walls, table tops and much more.
The colour options for glass are based on the production of the glassworks. 14 basic colours are offered.
