From simple glass beads to staggeringly intricate chandeliers, there is something uniquely attractive about Kitengela’s recycled glass products.

Take the dalle de verre for example. “We started making it as an offshoot of traditional stained glass. I was melting glass and discovered that there were many exciting things we could do with this medium,” explains Anselm. We have since interpreted this technique into everything – from furniture and floors to sculptures and shelves.”

Most recently, their singular use of glass as a form of garden jewellery is proving popular. A kind of giant hanging Lego, these pieces can be mixed and matched easily by the end-user. “From the functional to the fantastic, but always meaningful in form and design, we cater to the individual taste of our clients, and so custom designs and one-off collections constitute a major part of our work.”
