Tea Kettle, Borosilicate Glass
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 twenties, "fireproof" utility glass was 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 the new glass its contemporary form, and László Moholy-Nagy took care of the advertising. They used this ideal, completely timeless utility glass just in the kitchen, and that's exactly where it unfolds its very own charm even today.
Borosilicate glass is odorless as well as tasteless and suitable for use in the oven and microwave, on the stove, in the refrigerator and dishwasher. (Follow the manufacturer's care and use instructions.)

Borosilicate glass (heat-resistant up to 450 °C), a special glass for the optical and chemical industry developed by Ernst Abbe and Otto Schott in the Jena glassworks as long ago as 1891, and, which promptly went on to conquer the world. The nearby Bauhaus designers were fascinated with the idea of using laboratory glass in the kitchen and gave the new material a contemporary form. Today the products are mainly produced in the Czech Republic.
