Founded in 1970 in Macherio in Brianza, Italian design company Glas Italia is internationally recognized for its innovative and exceptionally made products. Synonymous with contemporary Italian design, the company emerged from the industrial traditions passed down in Lombard, considered the country’s premier region for design and craftsmanship.

Produced in a dedicated factory established by the company’s founders at the beginning of last century, Glas Italia’s prolific output pushes the boundaries of glass fabrication with a variety of products for residential and commercial use. Among the most popular items within the collection are furniture, including shelves, tables and bookcases; mirrors; glasses and tableware; and decorative accessories including vases and vessels.

Throughout its storied history, Glas Italia has collaborated with some of the world’s foremost designers and architects. The world’s top visual talents, including designers such as Jasper Morrison, Nendo, Piero Lissoni, Patricia Urquiola and Philippe Starck, have worked with the company, drawn to the pure material qualities of glass as well as the company’s technologically visionary production techniques. The result has been standout collections that have been commercially and critically successful.

Glas Italia has produced some of the most iconic furniture pieces of modern times. Standout products have included Shiro Kuramata’s seminal Glass Table (1976); Nendo’s Brushstroke Table Collection; and Piero Lissoni’s Wunderkammer Cabinet collection.
