Mass produced green glass bottles get new individual shapes when designer Klaas Kuiken works with them. He blows them one by one into unique objects.
He started his project with the question "Are there any irregularities in mass production?" He discovered irregularities in glass bottles: when the bottle was cut, the wall thickness was found to be different every time.
To emphasize those differences, Kuiken developed his own technique of glassblowing, through use of an oven, adapted by himself, and a compressor. By blowing the bottle, the glass bulges more at places where the thickness of the walls is thinner and less at places where it’s thicker.
About the Brand
Klaas Kuiken's products and designs arise from a fascination with the creative process and its influence on the final result. Even though he is clearly a product designer, when busy in his workshop he's more like a skilled craftsman and curious inventor. Kuiken loves to explore how the two worlds of craftsmanship and (mass) production can be brought together. As a result, his designs show a mix of unique features and standardization merged into a single product. His outlook on materials, manufacturing techniques and production processes is refreshing, surprising and charming at the same time.
Designed by Klaas Kuiken.
