this collection of ‘tartan glass’ by italian designer chiara andreatti forms a fusion between the traditional craftsmanship of blown work and the industrial precision of metal photo engraving. creating strong graphical imprints on the base of each object – metal nets are ‘dipped’ onto the bottom of each piece to create a plaid embellishment.
