NACHTMANN

The NEXTGEN Portfolio

Where creative ideas meet craftsmanship

The NACHTMANN NEXTGEN Project began in 2007, and was designed to give the next generation of young designers a unique opportunity to demonstrate their creative ability in a professional environment. The project teams NACHTMANN, a nearly 200-year-old glassware manufacturer, with students from leading design schools across the world, with a winning design chosen to be put into production under the NACHTMANN brand.

The NEXTGEN Portfolio includes a series of outstanding crystal products to add a piece of design history to your table, including vases, barware, plates and bowls. From their minds to our factories, discover the sensual lines of Curve, the fractured beauty of Quartz, the order and precision of Square, and others within our modern and timeless range of products.
