huy pham’s ‘fority cookings pots’ project consists of three different-sized containers made entirely from durable heat-resistant borosilicate glass, generally used in laboratory glassware. these properties allow the pots to be used in almost all conventional kitchen appliances — an oven, gas stove or microwave.

prague-based designer huy pham‘s cooking pots have a smooth and inert surface that doesn’t react chemically with food in any way, making it ideal for healthy cooking. ‘glass has been a part of our kitchens for centuries, mainly used for serving rather than cooking. choosing borosilicate glass gives the product great technical properties, but it is also the emotional value that makes it special. transparent glass allows you to observe the whole process and see how your food is slowly being cooked’, says the designer.

huy pham has presented the project at this year’s designblok | prague international design festival, subsequently nominated for the czech national award for student design and won in two categories: excellent student design and the museum of decorative arts award. the designer is currently negotiating with the manufacturer about the possibility of a full-scale production. the young designer worked with kavalier, a traditional manufacturer of borosilicate glass with a 180-year long history from central bohemia. the company produces kitchen glassware under the SIMAX brand and has experience with both industrial and handmade products.
