Fabric Moulded Glass
An utterly unique, slightly odd range of glassware produced by Silo Studio. An initiative led by designer Sebastian Wrong which sees an eclectic selection of designers collaborate with Danish design company HAY, under the name 'Wrong for Hay’.
The beautifully irregular form and textured finish is thanks to a special glassblowing process developed by the studio. A heatproof textile is cut and hand-stitched together to form a sock-like mould into which the glass is blown. We love the slightly puckered nature of the rims and the bumpy seams that are visible on the finished product.
Silo Studio, formed by Attua Aparicio and Oscar Wanless, quite aptly, they call a plastics factory on the southern bank of the Thames. Their work focuses on reintroducing a sense of craft into the production of industrial materials. You can watch the video above.
