100% Norway: Glass

Sustainability is a key issue in design this year and is represented throughout 100% Norway. Each designer takes the theme and interprets it in a new way. One example is Cathrine Maske’s Blue Wing Butterfly vase which has been designed to draw attention to a national species that is close to extinction – immortalised as it is forever now within multiple layers of glass.

Just one of the country’s leading glassware designers, Maske is joined by names such as Tanja Sæter, Anne Haavind, Kathinka Dysthe and Lena Hansson – all of whom will be presenting new works at 100% Norway this year. 100% Norway is also introducing some more talents in the field, including Kari Håkonsen, Lars Kværne and Vidar Koksvik.
