The goal: Designs that respond to the full potential Glass is an ancient material that

of glass as a material

has shaped and changed our world. Access to hot glassmaking processes is limited and opportunities for designers to freely experiment with the material are rare.

The problem: Limited opportunities for designers to freely experiment with hot glassmaking processes The solution: GlassLab


You bring your sketchbook.

We bring the glass.


GlassLab’s mobile equipment can be deployed virtually anywhere.


Three ways to participate:

Ten–Day Design Retreats

GlassLab offers an unprecedented way

Held annually at Domaine de Boisbuchet in Lessac, France. Presented in collaboration with The Vitra Design Museum and CIRECA.

for designers to discover the potential of hot glassmaking processes through creative exploration and experimentation. It’s an immersive, collaborative experience that is

Multi-Day Design Performances

Presented at public design venues such as Cooper-Hewitt, National Design Museum; Design Miami, and Vitra Design Museum.

informed by the ever-changing and immediate nature of the material itself.

Half-Day Design Workshops

Offered at The Corning Museum of Glass and select locations around the world


Process


In GlassLab sessions, designers collaborate with master glassmakers from The Corning Museum of Glass to freely experiment with hot glass. Designers bring their sketchbooks and work alongside master glassmakers in a mobile glassblowing hot shop. Participants have the rare opportunity to rapidly prototype design concepts in glass and to learn from the properties of glass that they observe and discover.
