More than 200 exhibits from all over the world show the fun of working with glass

On the 28th of March 2013 the Shanghai Museum of Glass presents a sparkling new exhibition that shows the playful and fun character of glass design. ‘Keep it Glassy’ shows the work of more than 50 designers from all over the world, including renowned names such as Droog (The Netherlands), Fabrica (Italy), the Campana Brothers (Brazil) and Tadao Ando (Japan). Over 200 exhibited objects have one thing in common: they are designed with love and should be handled with care.

Throughout time, glass has come a long way. Up until today designers are embracing the materials’ fascinating ability to take on endless shapes and colors. Besides the fact that working with glass is a very serious matter of craftsmanship, it is also a fun way of experimenting that can have surprising results. The new exhibition ‘Keep it Glassy ‘shows exactly this.

More than 200 exhibited works are carefully brought in from all over the world to come together in the new temporary exhibition space of the Shanghai Museum of Glass. For ‘Keep it Glassy’ an international selection of designers was made, as the fun of working with glass goes beyond borders of language, style or culture. The exhibition brings together the works of creative minds that share a common interest - a passion for glass and an excitement in working with the material.

Keep it Glassy is co-curated by COORDINATION ASIA, who also created the extra-ordinary exhibition concept and design for the project. A maze of mirrors and pools offers surprising perspectives and leads the visitor through the selection of exhibits that put a smile upon your face and show the magic of the material.

Keep it Glassy is on show throughout 2013, and will be accompanied by an exciting program of events. More information about the exhibition, the designers, and the exhibits will be available soon. Stay tuned!
