Blueside Emotional DesignThe Blueside Project originated with Roberto Falocci's passion and initiative. Steroglass can boast unique unparalleled skilled hands able to finely process and shape glass and whose great craftmanship guarantees excellence, thus deserving a key role beyond conventional technical sectors. All this combined with love for design, music and cuisine, in 2009 resulted in a diversified production and commercial project dedicated to design complements to dining,living and jewel world, which take inspiration from blues and jazz as well as conveying the emotions that inspires a musician on stage and the audience in an atmospheric performance. Blueside is all this: music shaped into objects you can touch and use, pure emotions close by.
Today hand glass blowing is an increasingly rare art; indeed it is an art of patience, fire, heat and precision. However shaping glass is not so easy. Being one of the most perfect and complex materials, glass never betrays those who know and love it. Shaping glass means tradition and requires expertise. Artistry and craftmanship, accurate and technical at the same time, resulted in the Blueside project. All of the objects in the collection are handcrafted one at a time. Each piece created by the expert hands of our glassblowers becomes unique, resembling others but definitely different from all of them, and this allows us to create shapes that are often impossible to make using molds or machinery, thus consecrating their high addes value. Glass in the first place in all its shapes and sizes. Mainly 3.3 borosilicate glass: the purest and most neutral exitsting glass, most resistant to thermal shocks, contaminant-free... a higher quality product.
