about ichendorf milano – this glassmaking specialist takes its name both from the small german town where it was founded in the early 20th century, and italy’s design capital, where it moved to in the 1990s. initially known for its precious glass ornaments, ichendorf milano now produces cutting-edge hand-blown glass tableware, working with contemporary italian designers such as corrado dotti and mist-o.
