Our Crystal
“The fascination about glass? – It is one of the oldest
materials mankind understood to shape. Imagine: You
melt some sand and look at the result.” Ted Muehling
The technique of melting quartz sand and shaping objects of enduring cultural
value dates back to the fourth century before Christ. The approach to the quality
of glass we take foregranted today was slow and careful. Glass has always fascinated
mankind. With its transparency, its unique shiny surface and its play with
light and reflection, glass has properties otherwise only found in diamonds or rock
This fascination for crystal has been the driving force behind Lobmeyr for almost
200 years. Through six generations the properties of crystal have been tested
and researched and its handling and forming possibilities explored. Thus we have
learned how to make the magic of the material enduringly visible. We concentrate
on the virtuous technical handling of this challenging substance, on lovingly crafted
details and subtle shine instead of “loud” glitter. Regardless whether wafer thin
blown muslin glass or glass that owes its shape to cutting – Lobmeyr reinstates the
beauty of this omnipresent material, bringing elegance and refinement back to
everyday life. Family – Company – Cultural History
Lobmeyr is in its sixth generation as a family business today.
A love of the material, the emotional relationship with the product
and the commitment of personal energy defined our method of
working from the beginning. In this context each generation
leaves its trace.
