Glass, Henry P.

(1911 - 2003)

Henry (Heintz) Peter Glass was an Austrian-American architect and designer. Glass was born in Vienna, where he studied architecture from 1929 to 1936. Due to his Jewish background, he had to leave Austria and went to New York in 1939. In 1942 he moved to Chicago, where he started his design firm, Henry P. Glass Associates. The School of the Art Institute of Chicago opened an industrial design department in 1946. Glass was a professor here for more than twenty years.

Our strength is that we read the past differently and do have a keen eye for yet little known masterpieces. Our company is housed in a former textile factory that spans 5.000 square meters. It is located just near Maastricht, in the south of the Netherlands, within two hours from Amsterdam, Bruxelles and Cologne. Only part of the collection is shown on the website.
