GlassLab Design Program

GlassLab offers designers unprecedented access to molten glass. In public design performances or private sessions, designers and glassmakers collaborate, rapidly prototyping concepts and using the immediacy of hot glass as a catalyst for innovation.

Meet the Designers

GlassLab designers come from various disciplines, such as product, graphic, and fashion design. Designers invited to work on GlassLab include Yves BĂ©har, the Campana Brothers, Nacho Carbonell, Matali Crasset, Sigga Heimis, Max Lamb, and Massimo Vignelli.

GlassLab at Boisbuchet

Partnering with professional designers, the Corning Museum presents glass workshops at the Domaine de Boisbuchet design retreat in southwest France, in which designers are encouraged to explore the properties of glass and the techniques of glassmaking.

Participate in GlassLab

Designers bring their sketchbooks, and we bring the glass. Opportunities to participate in public design sessions are by invitation only, but GlassLab is available to work with designers or design groups in private workshops, in Corning or elsewhere.
