BTM 01/The Mould is an interdisciplinary design research project driven by the desire to bring innovation to the artistic glass industry. The geographical focus of the research is the island of Murano, in Venice. The subject of the investigation is the industrial production of artistic glass made with the use of moulds.
The mould, in this scenario, became the thread connecting the experiments led by the BTM collective.
The project was structured into two main phases: research and presentation. During the research, by working closely with glassblowers and material experts, the design team was able to test the ideas and receive immediate feedback from the manufacturing partners. Subsequently, experiments and results were presented to the design community through a series of travelling exhibitions in selected venues.

BTM 01/The Mould was designed, developed and realised by AUT, Chiara Onida and Anna Perugini (designers); Marco Zito (architect); Dario Stellon (glass expert); Tommaso Cavallin (scientific support); Kinonauts (audiovisual). All pieces have been made in Murano by Salviati, a leading art glass manufacturer.
