Glass is a multitalented material

It plays many important roles in our everyday lives, in research and science, in modern architecture and in future sectors.

Glass is a material with a 9000 year history. Unlike bronze and iron, no epoch has been named after glass.    

Nevertheless, it is a material with prehistoric beginnings which was later produced in traditional craft and manufacturing establishments, and is now mass produced. Today, glass is a material with vast innovative potential that our everyday lives would be impossible to conceive without.
