dutch design week 2012: dewar glassware by david derksen

‘dewar glassware’ by david derksen

as a direct result of the production processes used in laboratory equipment, dutch designer david derksen has investigated the beauty, form and manufacturing techniques found within scientific glassware. all vessels and instruments start as glass tubes that are reshaped on lathes under extreme heat, as rubber parts are often used to connect the various components or to seal the containers.

acting as a malleable and gentle buffer for the glass, the material combination is both functional and aesthetically pleasant. with a contrast between artifact and its visual form becoming the starting point for the research, the development uses two walls of glass which sandwich a thin layer of silver to reflect the heat.

‘dewar glassware’ will be shown for the first time during dutch design week 2012 at ‘objects for sale’.
