Just as the company’s products are handed down from family generation to family generation, so it, too, passes on the principles of Jenaer Glas design. And as with all modern design, its core concept is a constant, consisting of top quality and the finest in functional culture for shared enjoyment.
The establishment of the Jena Glaswerk in 1884 marked the dawning of a new era in glass design. The visionaries Otto Schott and Carl and Roderich Zeiss first created the technical prerequisites that would soon make a new development in utility culture possible. It was in Jena that the first ever oven-proof household glass was invented: an ideal combination of style and function. In a creative dialogue, Bauhaus artists and Jena glass informed the modern face of product design. Quality products of functional design that are far removed from arbitrary, fast-moving fashion whims and still inform the face of the brand. Outstanding material properties and purpose-designed products have proved their success in recent times, too, of which design awards such as the Red Dot Award (2001), the IF Design Prize (2002) and the German Design Prize (2004) are eloquent proof. This unique tradition is now being continued by Zwiesel Kristallglas AG, the brand which took over the Jenaer Glas brand in 2006.
