The handmade “Mendini Collection” uses refined manufacturing technologies that keep the purity of color over time.

History of the Mendini Collection
In the 1990s, Seves Glassblock was the very first company to introduce color in glass blocks, thereby paving the way for new applications. Ten years later, Seves Glassblock asked Atelier Mendini, an eclectically creative company, to develop the use of color in glass blocks even further. This is how the “Mendini Collection” has come into being. This is a new range of glass blocks inspired by nature and conceived to introduce new visual nuances and sensations in contemporary home interiors.
According to its creators, the “Mendini Collection“, with its shiny and youthful colors, has been designed to enable glass blocks to generate chromatic and figurative arrangements suited for elegant and refined combinations:
“The color alphabet of the Mendini Collection gives individually chosen colors, and their relationships and variations, the possibility to create endless chessboards of variants, from single colors up to kaleidoscopic effects. So far, sensuality, conceptuality, symbolism, hedonism and emotions are parameters that have been missing from the geometric language of glass blocks.
This collection opens up new poetic horizons that architects have not been taken into account so far. However, they are now available and they are truly fascinating. New sparkling presences like sapphires, topazes, amber and ruby. And it is because of this rich appeal of nature that each color in this new collection has been given the expressive name of a precious stone.”
