Due to the custom nature of these items, the color you receive is dependant on the selection of recycled glass available.
  • Order with Confidence:Artecnica's mission is to elevate the purpose and value of everyday objects by using design to enchant, inspire and transform through the powerful tools of art and technology. Enchant - the unusual aesthetics of the object visually captivate the eye of the viewer; Inspire - an emotional attachment to the object develops while experiencing awe and stimulation, filling the heart; and Transform - excited and involved, the viewer's intellectual analysis evolves attitudes toward living environments, and ultimately life itself, intertwining the brain. Art represents the most personal expression of our design language, technology our unique application of materials, fabrication methods and techniques.Artecnica's initial focus was on visual excitement, artistic expression and use of exciting shapes and colors. The ''eye'' was king. As Artecnica grew, the reward of pure visual excitement was joined by intense commitment to design. They then started traveling the world, where they began exploring and sharing experiences. Specialized vendors were selected and collaborations with designers, merchants and craftsmen had begun. This allowed Artecnica to explore new materials experimentally and spontaneously.

Since its launch, the tranSglass Jug has become one of Artecnica's best-selling items. The unique design of this jug makes it visually appealing and a great accent for the home! With its recycled origins and sleek, fluid design, tranSglass conveys a positive attitude towards the environment, affirmed as an Artecnica Design With Conscience project. With the help of Aid to Artisans, a non-profit organization providing assistance to artisans worldwide, Artecnica collaborated with Guatemalan craftsmen to bring Emma Woffenden and Tord Boontje's designs to the market. Combining old-world craftsmanship and sophisticated design, each tranSglass vessel is a unique, one-of-a-kind piece. tranSglass is included in the permanent collection of MoMA New York.

About the Manufacturer

As Artecnica has continued to grow, the reward of pure visual excitement has been joined by their intense commitment to design. Teaming up with some of the world's leading designers has helped Artecnica to establish itself as a driving force for design objects for the home.

As Artecnica began questioning their values, scopes and means, they also reevaluated their materials, production processes and their utilization of human resources. They decided to make a shift toward more environmentally friendly and sustainable materials and it was through this deep awareness of global impact that inspired a formalized program known as "Design With Conscience". Founded in 2002, Design With Conscience is Artecnica’s campaign which infuses social and environmental responsibility into design. Artecnica promotes, directs, and sponsors collaborative exchanges between leading designers and artisan communities to create meaningful design that challenges people to adopt a deeper, more sensitive way of thinking about objects.
