REF. VITRUM

PRODUCTION : RASMUS LESEBERG, GLASS WORKSHOP - G. RIETVELD ACADEMY

WORDS : ‘VITRUM’ IS AN INVESTIGATION ABOUT POSSIBILE TRANSFORMATIONS AND ALTERNATIVE APPLICATIONS RELATED TO THE PRODUCTION OF FLOAT GLASS. FLOAT GLASS IS A SHEET OF GLASS WITH UNIFORM THICKNESS AND AN EXTREMELY FLAT SURFACE PRODUCED BY MELTING A MIXTURE OF RAW MATERIALS AND OTHER RECYCLED FLAT GLASS. TODAY, FLOAT GLASS IS USED FOR AUTOMOBILE GLASS (WINDSHIELDS, MIRRORS, ETC.), FURNITURE, WINDOWS, DOORS AND IN ARCHITECTURE.
IF CAST AND BLOWN GLASS HAVE BEEN CONSIDERABLY USED AND RE-EXPLAINED IN DESIGN - IN SHAPE, COLOR, FORMATION, PROCESS OF RECYCLING, ETC. - FLOAT GLASS CONTINUES TO BE CONSIDERED AS PURE ‘BUILDING MATERIAL’ AND ITS CHARACTERISTICS HAVE BEEN RARELY QUESTIONED. MORE SPECIFICALLY, RESEARCH ON THE MATERIAL HAS OFTEN TOUCHED UPON THE POSSIBILITY OF INCREASING ITS INDUSTRIAL PERFORMANCES RATHER THAN ANALYZING NEW PERCEIVABLE FEATURES. AS DESIGNERS, WE AIM TO QUESTION THE EXISTING QUALITIES OF THIS INDUSTRIALIZED MATERIAL AND COME UP WITH AN UNEXPLORED PERSPECTIVE.
