La Rochère Glass Factory
Portraits of the designers and pictures of their designs
In order to promote the know-how and the characteristics of La Rochère glass factory, located in Passavant-la-Rochère in the French department of Haute-Saône, Made in Town conducted a series of six video interviews of French and European designers, who have integrated the know-how of the glass factory into their creations. Each in their own way, they mastered glass.
In front of the camera, Alain Villechange (France), designer and glass blower, Fabrice Gibilaro (France), Jean-François d'Or (Belgium), Kai Richter (Germany), Laurence Brabant (France), Régis Protière (France), redraw the genesis of their collaboration with La Rochère.
This series of video portraits produced by Made in Town complete another set of four videos shot in the heart of the company’s workshops.
