Architectural Digest wrote a dispatch from the design world’s big events in New York this week and singled out their editors’ favorite pieces of home decor.

Among their favorites? Gorgeous glassware by Jason Forck from the Pittsburgh Glass Center‘s new tableware line, Penn + Fairmount.

“Manhattan was abuzz with design activity this weekend as not one but two design fairs took over the West Side (in three locations, no less). Between NY Now at the Javits Center and Shoppe Object’s dual locations, there was plenty of product to see, from fabric to furniture, ceramics to carpets. After walking the halls of both shows, AD PRO’s editors have selected their favorite finds — start speccing now,” Architectural Digest wrote.

High up on the list was a shoutout to the Pittsburgh Glass Center for their collaboration with Monmade and glass artist Forck on “these colorful, uniquely shaped tumblers and pitchers, which made their debut at NY Now.”

Penn + Fairmount was launched in 2017. Their new Jason Forck Collection of tableware was created by hand at the Glass Center using traditional Venetian techniques. This glassware somehow manages to be delicate and translucent, and yet also drenched with cheerful color. Beneath Pittsburgh’s gray winter skies, Forck and his team have somehow created what look like sculptural celebrations of springtime’s most beautiful colors.
