In many ways the history of Jena household glass runs parallel to that of the quest for industrial design. The Bauhaus in Weimar was only 20 km away from Jena, and its designers were fascinated by the idea of using laboratory glass in the kitchen: Walter Gropius was a strong influence, Gerhard Marcks did the sketches for the famous Sintrax coffee machine and Wilhelm Wagenfeld worked for Schott on a permanent basis from 1931 onwards.
Borosilicate Glass: Jena Glass. Laboratory Glass in the Home.
Borosilicate glass was developed in 1891. Ernst Abbe and Otto Schott designed it having in mind a special glass for the optical and chemical industry. From the Jena glassworks, the glass with the unique product features promptly went on to conquer the world. In the nearby Bauhaus school of design in Weimar, Wilhelm Wagenfeld, Bruno Mauder, and Ilse Decho were fascinated with the idea of using laboratory glass in the kitchen and gave the new material a contemporary form.
The glass does not absorb any odours and flavours. It is suitable for use in the oven and the microwave, on the stove, in the refrigerator and the dishwasher. It is essential to observe the care and application instructions enclosed in the delivery (provided by the manufacturer).
