Truly Truly worked with the Netherlands National Glass Museum to experiment with a novel method of casting glass. They built a spherical outer-mould holding adjustable pins, positioned in a grid around the sphere. The dynamic mould becomes a suggestive architecture; it allows the designers to influence the glass with a gentle touch. The designer and the glass engage in a co-creation in which forces of nature collide with human intervention. The resulting unreal and morphed shapes give full expression to the inherent properties of blown glass: tension, expansion, elasticity, gravity and fluidity. The process of the dynamic mould results in each Touched table light being subtly unique.
