Originally used for exterior windows, we salvaged this glass panel and a few others because we were mesmerised by the beauty of what seems to be a production error. The laminated glass contains small gas bubbles and a weird crystallisation process is taking place either in the glass or in the glus between the laminated parts.
Glass is revealed here as a reactive, aging, and stubborn material. This stands in contrast with the idea of glass as an “anti-material”; the perfect slave that keeps the cold out be does not impose its presence in any other way.
The panel was part of our monographic exhibition at Carwan Gallery, Beirut. It has also been shown at Design Kortrijk in an exhibition space with various ‘freak’ materials.
