Material: Murano Glass, Marble, Wood, Ceramic
The great variety of colors and textures of Idra Nasonmoretti’s glasses, in addition to their constant production, has allowed us to structure our approach to “noble waste” with a view to seriality and reproducibility. The galotta of Idra glasses, in its different colors and in its particular reflections, is completed by elements made of other materials, favoring their re-contextualization and enhancement. Marble, metal, wood, also processing scraps deriving from local companies and laboratories, constitute new raw material that we are able to process, designing a minimum intervention, sufficient to make the part functional. This will be the one to accompany, support and conclude the precious blown glass waste.
Our experimentation does not stop, but also investigates new shapes and finishes thanks to the 3d printing technology of regenerated and organic composition filament.
The galotta, also known as the top of the blown glass product, was definitely more interesting as it could be considered noble waste. It is a necessary part of the mould as it facilitates blowing, but is then removed for the functional needs of the product. The galotta has the same characteristics as the glass from which it’s divided, and therefore, it keeps the same dignity and value when reused. For FF Idra we recover some pieces from Nasonmoretti, historical furnace that blow high quality glass and table crystals since 1923.
