The northern beauty of «an&angel» glassware derives from an unconventional construction and a technology that allows coating glass with steel. Bowls by «an&angel» are sold all over the world, and the «Deco» collection has received the prestigious Red Dot Award.

Artist and designer Artis Nīmanis, founder of the glassware design brand «an&angel», loves to experiment with the materiality, form and function of glass. In this search, a glass bicycle, an acoustic system, an erotic toy collection and jewellery have been born and united under the brand «Glass Muse». We visited the office and showroom of «an&angel» in Andrejsala, as well as workshop in Pārdaugava, to see the process of polishing glass.
