The technique of melting quartz sand to form durable cultural objects dates back to the fourth millennium BC and was a step towards glassmaking that we take for granted today. Glass has always fascinated us. With its transparency, its unique shine and ability to play with light and reflection, it possesses properties only found in diamonds and crystals.
This fascination for glass has been driving Lobmeyr for almost two hundred years now. Over six generations, the material's peculiarities have been investigated and its processing and design possibilities explored by Lobmeyr. In the process, we have learned how to make the magic of material tangible in the long term. You rely on the virtuoso craftsmanship of the demanding material, on the lovingly crafted detail and on the fine sheen instead of the "loud" sparkle of the final product.
Today, Lobmeyr is in its sixth generation and is a family business.
Their love for the material, their emotional reference to their products, their use of their own energy, has always determined their identity and how they work. Every generation leaves its mark in this sense.'
At Lobmeyer, they are constantly working on contemporary interpretations of glass. At the same time, they never stopped cultivating traditions.
Lobmeyr works with outstanding designers, whether architects of the Vienna Ringstrasse in the 19th century, pioneers of modernism after the turn of the century or contemporary artists - the list of designers' names reflects both the diversity and the quality of their work.
The company's current repertoire ranges from high-quality utility glass to custom-made products and collector's items to antiques like the Lobmeyr signet. The company also produces and sells mirrors in both historical and modern styles, as well as chandeliers in a wide variety of shapes and styles. The most famous are probably those of the New York Metropolitan Opera.
