For its latest glassware series, Diego Olivero Studio has worked alongside a team of artisans in Delhi – creating a collection that sees a playful aesthetic created through traditional craft methods.

Titled Kaanch, which is Hindi for “glass”, the series is made from Borosilicate glass, and includes both vessels and lamps. The overarching concept explores duality – think chaos and peace, stillness, and connectivity and independence. To show this, the studio employed the use of both bold colors and total transparency. Across 11-piece range, decorative elements are created from bright tones in gestural shapes, with the main body remaining colourless. Because they have been made from Borosilicate glass, the designs will be able to withstand extreme temperatures – making them perfect for public settings such as restaurants and bars.

“I was thrilled to collaborate with these incredible skilled glass artisans with their historical knowledge of glass combined with their modern visions,” Olivero says. “These objects contain all the beauty, colors, flavors, noise, and peace that is India. As a part of Materiaaal’s Objects That Disobey, the Kaanch series reinvents the familiar, creating unexpected moments of thought, play, reflection, and surprise.”

Prices for the Kaanch Collection start at $2,000 USD. The full collection will be on show during NYCxDesign, at Diego Olivero Studio’s space in Dumbo Brooklyn from May 18 to 25, start at $2,000.
