100 YEARS OF THE FINEST GLASS
Ichendorf company history began back in the early years of the twentieth century in a small town near Cologne, named Quadrath-Ichendorf. There, many master-glaziers used a mix of substances, among which was silica, to give shape to objects able to meet the refined taste of that period. A stylistic code defined by precious ornaments, which had the undiscussed leading role of the collections proposed up until the fifties of the past century, when a very important change is established: to favour clean shape and purity of material. Old form and adornment were abolished, in an endless search for new, popular and no longer exclusive appearances. In 1990 Ichendorf style centre is established in Milan, creative point of convergence of artists and designers. The meeting and constant exchange of tradition and innovation, always aimed at the pursuit of beauty in its purest forms, gives life to all Ichendorf objects.
