SameSame / Germany
SameSame (Laura Jungmann & Cornelius Réer): SameSame When Form Follows the Forgotten. A series of remodeled and upcycled glass bottles that emerged from Laura Jungmann’s Product Design in 2013. Created by Cornelius Réer in his glass manufacture from commercially available and industrial glass bottles that are upgraded both functionally and esthetically by means of traditional craftsmanship. The distinctive features of the bottles are preserved while a high-value individual item originates from a standardized mass product. SameSame is an attempt to develop a new creative approach to alternative product- and production thinking, and the often misinterpreted term “sustainability”. But above all it’s also a tribute to an increasingly forgotten trade.
