Kristallglasmanufaktur Theresienthal


 

Glassblowers, cutters, engravers, painters and other craftsmen have been working in Theresienthal since 1836. These craftsmen have accumulated the skill and experience that is essential for the making of exclusive crystal ware. Many of these craftsmen have worked in Theresienthal for decades and are sometimes the fourth or fifth generation of artisans. Theresienthal has always relied exclusively on its own craftsmen and every single item is hand-made. The process starts with the creation of a wooden mould. This is carried out by a master wood-turner. The liquid glass is blown into this mould to form the cup. A strand of moulten glass is then formed into the stem which is attached to the cup before the stem solidifies. Using a similar method, some glasses are further adorned with ornaments similarly made by hand. The glasses are then cut, engraved or painted, depending on the design and finally hand-polished. All these steps are done exclusively at our site in Bavaria, meaning that we have full control of the entire manufacturing process. This way we can guaranty the quality and timely delivery.

String Furniture shown at imm cologne


 

The String shelf was designed by Nils Strinning in 1949 and today belongs to the canon of classic Scandinavian design. The new String+ line, to be launched in 2013, shows that there’s a lot more to this minimalist idea for a beautifully designed shelf.

The String+ concept is based on components that remain true to the original String design and can therefore easily be integrated into the system. The first component to be launched is a foldable table designed by the Swedish architects Björn Dahlström and Anna von Schewen.The table will be introduced at the Stockholm Furniture Fair. Further components will be launched later in 2013.

Discipline - an Italian design brand


 

The name Discipline, which means order and competence, combines the method and the message at the origin: creating a new generation of furniture and accessories to lend emotion to the real life. A life that is increasingly focused on respect and on a natural need for everyday harmony. And where surrounding oneself with beautiful objects means to make up for optimism and excitement. Each product is built with materials selected for their self-regenerating properties, such as wood, cork, bamboo, glass, natural textiles and eco upholstering, obtained by sustainable production methods. A set of features that flows together into an aesthetic pleasure made of tactile and olfactory emotions, which grow and customize on everybody own personality. In order to give new life to any product and any emotion to the final users, Discipline has involved an international team, now including 14 designers from 10 different countries: Lars Beller Fjetland, Mario Bellini, Pauline Deltour, Ding3000, Lars Frideen, James Irvine, Ichiro Iwasaki, Klauser&Carpenter, Claesson Koivisto Rune, Max Lamb, Nendo, Luca Nichetto, Philippe Nigro, Marc Sadler, Sibylle Stoeckli and SmithMatthias. And there are more to come.
