Recycled glass from beverage bottling plants and demolished windows.
Nico Guevara & Niels Datema / Lafiore Glass
Lafiore is a well-known artistic glass company in Mallorca that has been using recycled glass from beverage bottling plants, windows from demolished buildings and other sources as raw materials since the very beginning, selecting them to create innovative pieces while maintaining tradition.
The raw material is treated and melted, with the delicate and precise workmanship of artisans, is transformed into blown glass objects or fusing pieces (kiln-glass). Production waste is provided to other companies to be reused as aggregate or recycled materials with a waste manager.
Designers Nico Guevara and Niels Datema explore the possibilities of glass by designing new products and offering another perspective on producing and integrating them with various materials for decorative or everyday pieces.
