Melt is inspired by the supple quality of glass when heated during the manufacturing process. The gently curved sections are made from large slabs of cast glass which are laid over curved moulds by expert glassmakers whilst still pliant. This allows the glass to slowly sink or stretch to create a beautiful arch.
