Studio Makkink & Bey was invited by Circulair Warenhuis to develop a prototype product that uses the residual flows of the circular department store. The studio de- signed the GLASS-works Matter series, a set of drinking glasses with a total volume of 70 liters, the amount of water in Jurgen Bey’s body. The glasses are collected from the stocks in the shop and engraved with delicate drawings of body organs. Each glass retains its own history and individuality, but at the same time forms a collection that tells the complete story with the other glasses. The engraving is done by the personnel in the workshop, thus learning new skills along the way.
