Founded in 1964 in Hsinchu, Taiwan, TG is a company specializing in cutting-edge glass production. Their trademark is super-thin borosilicate glass as fine as 0.3mm thick that resists temperatures up to 400°C. Their glassware is made using a crystal grade laser cutter, allowing for little to no lip on their vessels.
In 2018, Taiwan Glass invited Naoto Fukasawa to experience Taiwanese culture and hospitality, and create a contemporary collection of glassware. Using characteristics unique to Taiwan Glass, the collection features warm, fully embodied curves, inspired by Fukasawa’s experiences.
The collection is called TG, and is Taiwan Glass’s first collaboration with international designers to create new products infused with Taiwanese culture.
