NextGen Design for NACHTMANN

What happens when curiosity and creativity meet tradition and craftsmanship?

Emerging designers from around the world are designing for NACHTMANN

NACHTMANN's heritage as a Bavarian glassmaker stretches back over two centuries. We respect our past, of course, but we are eager to shape our future.
Looking ahead, we are on a constant quest to find the next generation of talented glassware designers. This search takes us to our own design studios and to leading art colleges around the world. So far, we have tapped into young design talent in Prague, Tokyo, New York, Stockholm, Stuttgart, Beijing, London and Sydney. The results have been creatively and commercially uplifting. Fusing cutting-edge ideas with traditional craft skills, we are creating the next generation of modern classics in glass.

Innovative and creative work

To date, NACHTMANN NextGen design competitions have been held in New York, Stockholm, Tokyo, Prague, Beijing, Stuttgart, London, and Sydney.
“We are delighted that our NACHTMANN NextGen competitions have inspired up-and-coming young international designers to produce such innovative and creative work, which we are now proud to number among our most successful product categories."
