Oil or vinegar bottle borosilicate glass
Timeless Material for the Use in the Kitchen.
This material has made history. The unproblematic material allowed designers to develop a reduced aesthetic for household items. Since the 1920s, refractory glassware has been used by top Bauhaus designers. It was the first time that a “technical” glass was produced, and it inspired them in a functional and formal sense. They introduced this ideal and utterly timeless material for the use in the kitchen, and this is precisely the place where it hasn’t lost any of its charms down to the present day.
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.
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.
