GLASS IS TOMORROW is a European network which aims at establishing a more fluid exchange of knowledge and competencies between glass and design professionals in Europe. The project was launched on 1 June 2011 and will last until the end of May 2013. Supported by the ‘Culture‘ (2007-2013) Programme of the European Union, GLASS IS TOMORROW promotes a high level of craft and design in contemporary glass. Glass aesthetics and techniques will be explored by tandems of designers and glassmakers to develop new typologies of everyday objects. The project hopes to open up new potentialities and to generate dialogue about the conception, production and distribution of glass pieces.
