Emma Woffenden & Tord Boontje

Tord Boontje comes from the design world of multiple production; Emma Woffenden from the experience of individual expression, the unique response.  Far from retreating into bucolic isolation, they are fully engaged with their very contemporary roles.

Transglass is an entirely practical project in which Boontje and Woffenden have used simple, straightforward design principles, glass-working skills and an ethical commitment to re-cycling and social fairness. Is direct collaboration between these two apparently very different personalities. It is a celebration of their common interests: in use and re-use, in light and shadow, and in sexuality, sensual experience, birth and death, passion and lament.In time they attracted the interest of several charities in supporting transglass’ sustainable production methods and also in putting it to work for social causes.
