Turning glass into utilitarian objects is the mission of HECTARUS and the passion of its two founders: Orel Édouard Johnson, businessman and glass technician, and Francesca Alepin Kneider, a Quebec interior designer and glass designer.
Their designs are characterized by unique textures that alter the transmission of light to create unusual effects. In fact, due to its galactic origins, the very name HECTARUS evokes the infinite variations of starlight from the heavens above.
The techniques developed by HECTARUS allow the artisan to treat glass like sheets of paper, by giving it shape, texture and color through a multi-layered fusion process. The result is vitrified glass - the final step in a Glass to Glass transformation.
Using proprietary methods, HECTARUS has created a variety of exclusive products, such as the ever-popular sinks, mirrors, tiles, tables, chairs, wall panels, doors, plates, bowls and bathroom accessories.
