Since London-based designer Rolf Sachs, son of Gunter, switched from investment banking to furniture design 20 years ago, his limited edition and conceptual pieces have a garnered a dedicated following in both art and design circles.
For our Handmade issue, Sachs conceived a basic glass vessel, the shape of a tin can, that can be customised (with the addition of a spout, a lid, or various cavities) to serve as a glass, jug, jar or candleholder.
We accompanied him on his visit to the Iittala glass factory to see his designs come to fruition.
