MICHAEL BANG (1942-2013)
Michael Bang was the son of Jacob E. Bang, Holmegaard’s first designer. In the 1960s and 1970s, Michael Bang was a designer at the Odense Glass Factory, but moved with his family to Holmegaard in the 1980s when he joined the Holmegaard Glass Factory. Here he managed the design of the mouth-blown lamps in opal-white glass in which the glass factory specialized.
Michael Bang was quick-witted, fascinating and fun and able to captivate an audience when the glass factory organized presentations.
Many of his products have now become collector’s items. His Fontaine wine glass range from 1987 with the bubble in the cup of the glass is an example of some of Holmegaard’s most advanced craftsmanship and a current range in the market for exclusive wine service.
