BESPOKE ARCHITECTURE GLASS
Maaemo, Oslo’s ground-breaking three Michelin starred restaurant reopened its doors at the new location in 2020. Run and co-owned by Head Chef Esben Holmboe Bang, the Reataurant focusesses on a complete experience. In doing so, they aim to highlight the relationship between the raw produce, and the finished product.
When I was aked to send my Circle Glass up North to Maaemo, I felt like the waterglasses were coming home to their northern family. Thank you for having us!
Maaemo – an old Finnish word meaning “Mother Earth” – is focused on creating a narrative around the clean, bright flavours of Norway. The produce used at Maaemo is entirely organic, biodynamic, or wild. Maaemo builds around its local produce driven cuisine with a focus on reflecting the changing seasons and the raw nature of Norway.
Maaemo has won accolades from food critics around the world. In 2012, just 14 months after opening, Maaemo was awarded two Michelin stars in its first ever mention in the prestigious guide, becoming the first, and only, restaurant in the Nordics to do so. In 2016 Maaemo was awarded a third Michelin star, becoming the first Norwegian restaurant ever to hold Michelin’s highest accolade and the world’s most northerly three Michelin-starred restaurant.
NEW ARCHITECTURAL MATERIALS
ArtaGlass - The Collection “Bayerische Hofglasmalerei” launches world's first handmade architectural glass designer collection
A long tradition of special craftsmanship is moving into contemporary interior design: The historic mosaic and stained glass workshops Gustav van Treeck (since 1887) is once again breaking new ground by launching the world's first designer collection of handmade architectural glass in their new showroom.
The twelve exciting design concepts of the ArtaGlass Collection Volume 1 invite architects, interior designers and decorators to incorporate exceptional hand-crafted glass elements into their future projects.
Artistic, expansive modules create light-filled spaces, adding elegance to interior designs. The refined glass, with its transparency and light-painting properties, creates exciting light reflections and high quality details. The durable material is easy to maintain and as each application is planned individually, some designs are even customisable.
FRAMES OF COLOR
by Milena Kling
The tradition of stained glass window frames is merged with printed gradients of color scales. United they transform into minimalist frames of color for the interior and exterior.
A wide palette of colors can be created by layering colors onto glass. Custom Colors matching materials and wishes of architects as well as bespoke projects can be printed onto glass to form life-size color scales.
