After a successful design project with Parsons School for Design in 2007, Nachtmann continues to expand on their relationship with widely-known and respected design schools. These collaborations with design communities will only further Nachtmann's goal of continuing to create modern classics in crystal.
In 2010, Nachtmann initiated a design competition with New York's PRATT Institute lead by product designer Stefanie Kubank. Pratt Institue is one of the most renowned intitutes for architecture and deisng in the US.

Quartz sand is one of the basic raw materials for producing crystal glass. The sparkling surface of its crystalline structure was the inspiration for Catherine Merrick for her new design. The brilliant lead crystal and the extraordinary pattern of the bowl have a wonderful and sparkling light refraction and create magic moments in every ambiance.
