Glass & Mirrors
We use different types of glass in our collection, including 100% or 50% recycled glass, soda lime glass and heat-resistant borosilicate glass. Mirror glass is used for all of our mirrors. We use hardened glass for various furniture and lighting products such as wired or reeded glass. Some of our lighting is crafted from opal glass.
50-100% Recycled Glass
As a part of our effort to increase the number of RESPONSIBLE products in our collection, we increasingly use recycled glass as a material for tableware and accessories. Each piece crafted from recycled glass has been mouth-blown and has a characteristic, unique colour hue due to recycled material that is determined by the original glass material. Our glassware made from recycled glass is dishwasher-safe. Vases should be rinsed in lukewarm water.
Soda Lime Borosilicate Glass
Because our glasses are handmade and mouth-blown, no two glasses are exactly the same. Therefore, slight variations in size and form may occur. All of our glass tableware is dishwasher safe. We always aim for a thin and light expression in our glasses, so even though all glass is dishwasher safe, we suggest handling them with care and stack carefully in the dishwasher. The remaining soda lime and borosilicate glass items should be washed by hand.
For regular cleaning, use a soft, dry cloth. For heavier stains, use a soft brush with a standard detergent and rinse with a solution of vinegar and water. Finish by wiping with a dry, lint-free cloth. Avoid using chemicals and abrasive cleaners, as these will damage the surface of the glass.
Use a soft, clean damp cloth to clean mirror glass. Each time a mirror is moved, there is a risk of damage, which is why we recommend moving your mirror around as little as possible. Do not allow the mirror's edges to remain wet for extended periods of time. Do not use acidic or alkaline chemicals on the mirror, and never use abrasive cleaners/powders or steel wool. For more thorough cleaning, use commercial glass cleaners without ammonia or vinegar.
Opaque glass originated in Venice in the 16th century. The translucent glass used for our lighting products allows for a translucent, soft light. Wipe down with a damp cloth and a drop of mild detergent if needed.
