这是为威尼斯玻璃制造商和制造专家WonderGlass设计的家具系列。该公司擅长玻璃制造品,利用特殊工艺从模具中取出可塑性的材料然后进一步进行手工加工。新系列产品的设计采用了这种工艺和玻璃的黏性。在制作过程中先将熔融状态的玻璃倒入一个方形模具中,然后工匠们同时使用铁铲将表面打磨平整。玻璃逐渐冷却并达到一定的可塑性之后,将其倒入U型模具中或者倒置,使玻璃缓慢下沉和拉伸,形成一个美丽的拱形。

A furniture collection designed for WonderGlass, a manufacturer and expert of Venetian glass.The company excels in glass casting with a special technique of removing pliable material out of the mold to further process it by hand. The design of the new collection takes advantage of this method and the viscosity of the glass. In the making process molten glass is first poured into a square frame, where a number of craftsmen simultaneously even out the surface using iron trowels. The glass gradually cools and upon reaching a certain pliancy, it is moved and placed onto a U-shaped mold or its inverted shape, allowing the glass to slowly sink or stretch to create a beautiful arch.

在塑形的过程中,工匠也会用工具调整拱形的形状,确保没有歪曲和裂缝。弯曲玻璃技术被用来设计扶手椅、桌子、花瓶和其他产品。由于拱形和曲线都是由玻璃自身的重量和黏度形成的,这个系列被命名为“融化”,

Even during this shaping process, the craftsmen use tools to shape the arch, making sure there are no bends or cracks. This curving glass technique is used to design armchairs, tables, flower vases, and more. Since the arches and curves are created by the glass’s own weight and viscosity, the collection was named “melt”.
