Making everyday objects special

Blow By Blow

  • Blow By Blow

This summer marks the 20th Anniversary of industrial designer Sebastian Bergne’s studio. To celebrate this occasion, the exhibition Blow By Blow will show an extraordinary collection of unseen personal glass projects.

Since starting his professional practice in 1990, Sebastian has collaborated with small glass making workshops to produce these private pieces alongside his regular studio activities. This series of objects will be presented against a background of his prolific mainstream studio activities, shown in digital form, giving the visitor a unique viewpoint of Sebastian’s exceptionally diverse body of work.

The dozen or so projects exhibited range from his first works in glass as a student, through bespoke shot glasses created for his own wedding to more recent projects and experiments, culminating with a Champagne flute created especially for this event. A numbered and signed edition of 100 Capped Champagne Tubes will be on sale at the exhibition.
