Glass jug borosilicate glass
Large and light at once.
A glass pitcher for cold beverages, like lemonade, or a freshly brewed black tea with lemon. In the summer, the glass offers an unimpeded view on the ingredients of peppermint and fresh melissa tea. In the cold seasons, it serves hot wine punch. The pitcher sits happily on its broad base and is easy to handle when full.
Borosilicate Glass: Jena Glass. Laboratory Glass in the Home.
Borosilicate glass was developed in 1891. Ernst Abbe and Otto Schott designed it having in mind a special glass for the optical and chemical industry. From the Jena glassworks, the glass with the unique product features promptly went on to conquer the world. In the nearby Bauhaus school of design in Weimar, Wilhelm Wagenfeld, Bruno Mauder, and Ilse Decho were fascinated with the idea of using laboratory glass in the kitchen and gave the new material a contemporary form.
Large and light
A glass pitcher in which iced drinks (sodas) can come to the table, but also a freshly brewed tea in it (invigorating in summer: from peppermint leaves, fresh lemon balm, from black tea with lemon) or even a mulled wine.
Stable thanks to the large footprint and good to handle when filled.
Tensioning, but tension-free. Vessels made of borosilicate glass
This material has made history. The unproblematic material allowed designers to develop a detached, reduced aesthetic - since the 1920s, "fireproof" utility glass has been used by top designers from the Bauhaus environment. This gave rise for the first time to glass that was "technical" in both formal and material terms. Well-known greats such as Wilhelm Wagenfeld, Bruno Mauder and Ilse Decho gave it its contemporary form and found new uses for it. László Moholy-Nagy took care of the advertising. They used this ideal, completely timeless utility glass in the kitchen in particular, and that is precisely where it continues to develop its very own charm today. The oil or vinegar bottle, for example, you can still see their origin from the laboratory.
