This week on “CBS This Morning,” CBS News correspondent David Begnaud asked a glass designer and the glass industry about the difference between glass and glassware, the difference of technology, and the impact of glass on society.
Glass is so much more than glass, the designer says, and glass is making glass even better.
“The best part about glass is that it’s made from real glass,” said the designer, who is also the glass artist for the company IKEA.
“And it’s a very durable material, which means that it can be put in different contexts, depending on what you’re doing with it.
It can be used for different purposes.”
The glass maker also discussed the future of the glass market.
“I think we’re seeing an increasing amount of people looking at glass as a way of doing business,” said Dan Kinlh, who’s a partner at the firm IKEB.
“People are looking at it as an investment, as a business investment, not a business opportunity.
“It’s beautiful, but it’s also very durable, and I think that’s going to continue to change in the years to come.” “
Glass is a beautiful piece of glass,” he said.
“It’s beautiful, but it’s also very durable, and I think that’s going to continue to change in the years to come.”
A glass designer from IKE B.V. says a glass screen is the future.
“If you look at any modern consumer product, you’ll find that there are more than a handful of companies that have developed glass screens for the consumer market,” said IKE’s Peter Zuckerman.
“We believe that the glass screen will be an essential component in the future.”
IKE sells glass screens, or glass screen-type screens, in various sizes, with different features, from a simple square to a round screen, to the world’s first commercial glass-screened coffee table.
“This is a big deal for the glass world,” said Zuckers, who says he’s working with glass companies to bring the screens to the U.S. market.
Zuckermans company, IKE, also produces glass display panels for the military.
He says the military’s need for glass displays is so great that they’re currently developing a line of glass displays that will be used in the U,K., and France.
“That is the largest market,” Zuckergs says.
“What IKE has created is an entirely new class of glass products that we believe are going to be incredibly successful.”
